It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to ECU.
In a little over 25 years, ECU has grown rapidly into a quality university with internationally recognised research and the highest level of student satisfaction of all Australian public universities.
And while our research culture is developing, we punch above our weight in research impact.
Between 2013 and 2017, 9% of ECU’s research publications indexed in SciVal have been in the top 5% most cited publications in the world. Our citation impact puts us on par with some of the best universities globally.
We are seeking a number of outstanding researchers to join us in taking ECU to the next level – people who can demonstrate a strong track record in publications, as well as a passion for making a difference in their field.
In 2015 I moved to ECU from Heriot-Watt University in Scotland. I've been extremely impressed by the quality of the ECU campuses and the enthusiasm and welcome I received from staff and students.
I urge you to consider joining me at this vibrant, young university. You won't be disappointed.
Professor Steve Chapman, Vice-Chancellor
