Job description
  • Full-time, Research appointment, five-year fixed-term
  • Based at ACU’s Melbourne Campus

Australian Catholic University’s (ACU) Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry (IRCI) seeks candidates of outstanding potential and demonstrated achievement with expertise in Autonomy, broadly conceived, to contribute to the five-year project, Redeeming Autonomy: Vulnerability and Rationality.

Successful applicants will join a vibrant research environment and work collegially and collaboratively to build their own research profile of high-quality publications, and contribute to team projects within their areas of specialisation and across traditional disciplinary boundaries. Research Fellows and Senior Research Fellows have a primary focus on research, but some teaching, especially of graduate students may be part of the role.

ACU’s IRCIis a research Institute which promotes collaborative research on religion and critical thought from multiple disciplinary perspectives, including philosophy, theology, history, and literature. It explores the inter-relationships between philosophy, religion and their cultural contexts, and contributes to contemporary theological, philosophical, social, and political debates.

The Redeeming Autonomy project seeks to make a strategic intervention in the academic and cultural debate around the concept of ‘autonomy’. The project has two principle dimensions, which it seeks to bring into a fruitful relationship: the conceptual and historical; and the contextual and applied. Applications are invited from candidates whose research addresses an aspect of one, or both, of these strands of the project.

ACU is an inclusive community that welcomes students and staff of all faiths and no faith. It enrols more than 35,000 students across seven campuses – Adelaide, Ballarat, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, North Sydney and Strathfield (Sydney). As valued members of our community, all staff members are expected to have an understanding of ACU’s mission and values and to demonstrate an active contribution to them.

Remuneration: Research Fellow salary starts at $98,407 + 17% employer superannuation contribution. Senior Research Fellow starts at $123,300 + 17% employer superannuation contribution. In addition, the roles attract a research allowance.
