We are seeking a thought leader and future mentor for the software engineering research team in NICTA. We want a person keen to pursue "use inspired" research and enjoy the full research lifecycle "from imagination to impact". The person we seek will have a history of publications in leading conferences and journals, demonstrated track record in successful PhD supervision, success in attracting grant funds and defining and carrying out research projects which have industrial impact. Experience in research commercialisation is also valued.

We currently have 13 research staff, several research engineers and 12 PhD students in our software engineering team.

We have one large project (ArMaTure) funded through to the end of 2011 and other new project proposals in the pipeline.
