We are looking for people to join our university - to bring your global expertise to our regions, and to take your powerful ideas to the world with us.
Why join the University of Newcastle
Our vision to become a world-leading university for our regions will take passion and perseverance. Our regions are important to us. We were literally built, brick-by-brick, by our community more than fifty years ago. And our community - our students - remain at the heart of every decision we make. Collaboration is in our DNA. It’s one of the reasons we’re the number one university in the world for partnering for a sustainable future, and number one in Australia for industry collaboration.
We have a range of academic and professional roles available in diverse fields across the institution.
