Thank you for your interest in a career at Charles Darwin University

Firstly, I wish to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the country on which Charles Darwin University campuses and centres are located, and their elders past and present.


Welcome to the Charles Darwin University (CDU) careers page and thank you for considering our institution as part of your career search.


CDU is headquartered in Australia’s most northern capital city – Darwin – a young, multicultural and cosmopolitan tropical city that sits on the rim of South-East Asia.


As the only university in the Northern Territory, CDU is uniquely placed to provide education, training and research expertise in Australia’s north and the wider Asia-Pacific region.


Whether you are at the start of your career or are already established, CDU is keen for you to explore the many career opportunities offered in our academic sectors, and positions advertised for non-academic professionals.


Ranked in the top two per cent of universities in the world, CDU has grown to become an internationally renowned dual sector teaching and learning institution, offering strong education and training opportunities in Higher Education and Vocational Education and Training.


The university has 11 campuses and learning centres throughout Australia that deliver training in more than 170 locations to more than 24,000 students, and has strong relationships with other Australian universities in the fields of medicine, languages, marine science and Indigenous knowledges.


CDU also enjoys active partnerships and Memorandums of Understanding with 18 international institutions and organisations.


Proud of our community origins, CDU is a vibrant institution, constantly evolving, adapting and changing with local, national and international education trends. Higher Education and VET programs prepare students to be creative thinkers and effective contributors in an ever changing world.


CDU courses are closely attuned to the education, employment and research needs of industry. We forge close partnerships with industry, government and cooperative research centres.


This year is an exciting time to join the university.


Our “Connect, Discover, Grow” strategic plan envisages a positive trajectory for every aspect of the institution out to 2025 and beyond.


In a 2016 international report by UK higher education consultant Firetail, CDU was identified as a “rising star” among an elite group of 20 universities that were identified as having the potential to become globally influential by 2030.


I hope you find our careers page informative, and I wish you every success in applying for a position at Charles Darwin University.
