Professor in Sustainable Energy and Leader: Research Node for Low Carbon Living (Level E)
The University of South Australia is an enterprising and dynamic, outward-looking institution established in 1991, but built on more than 150 years of teaching, learning and research excellence of our antecedent institutions. The University is South Australia’s largest and continues to enjoy a strong upward trajectory across a number of key indicators and global rankings - it is ranked amongst the top 3% of universities worldwide and in the top 50 international universities under 50 years of age.
