The Australian National University (ANU) is one of the world’s foremost research universities. Distinguished by its relentless pursuit of excellence, the University attracts leading academics and outstanding students from Australia and around the world.

The ANU College of Asia and the Pacific (CAP) leads intellectual engagement with the Asia-Pacific region through research, teaching and contributions to public debate, and seeks to set the international standard for scholarship concerning the region.

Crawford School of Public Policy is one of four Schools within CAP. The School’s approach to public policy draws upon disciplinary excellence in the core areas of economics, government, environment and development, and also deep geographical knowledge of Asia and the Pacific, including Australia. Crawford School is the University's gateway to public policy and one of the great public policy schools of the world.

The Sir John G Crawford Chair in Agricultural Economics will be located within the Arndt-Corden Department of Economics. The Arndt-Corden Department of Economics (ACDE) works on theoretical and applied problems of international economics and development, with particular emphasis on the countries of Southeast, Northeast and South Asia, and the Southwest Pacific.

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding leader in the field of international agricultural economics to fill the position of the Sir John G Crawford Chair in Agricultural Economics. The Professor will provide high-level research and teaching leadership within the Crawford School of Public Policy. The Professor will undertake internationally acclaimed research in the field of agricultural economics, particularly of the Asia Pacific region, and will engage externally to shape and influence public policy. The successful candidate will conduct research, education (teaching and supervision) and policy engagement for the Department, School, CAP and the wider University community.

The successful candidate will be a world-class senior academic, seeking a challenging and rewarding role in a high-profile, collegial academic environment.

Increasing the representation of women and academics from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds at senior levels is a strategic priority for the Crawford School. We strongly encourage applications from these groups.
