Academic Careers

Academic Roles

There are four types of Academic roles at ECU:

  • Teaching and Research Scholar
  • Teaching Focused Scholar
  • Practitioner Scholar
  • Research Focused Scholar

A role is assigned to a staff member based on the individual’s contribution to the three core areas of academic work – Learning and Teaching, Research and Research Training, and University Service.

Teaching and Research Scholar roles perform across Learning and Teaching, Research and Research Training, and University Service.

Teaching Focused Scholar roles concentrate more on Learning and Teaching and University Service than Research and Research Training. Similarly, Practitioner Scholar roles contribute to the Learning and Teaching and University Service areas, with a particular emphasis on industry and professional practice.

Research Focused Scholar roles focus on Research and Research Training and University Service, and may contribute to Learning and Teaching to a lesser extent.

Academic Career Progression

The Academic Staff Performance Expectations and Outcomes (ASPEO) Framework outlines the University’s performance expectations at each academic level. Career progression is facilitated through the academic staff promotion process.
