APCD’s primary resource is people and their ideas: a cohort of academic staff, postgraduate and PhD students, adjuncts, affiliates and visitors who are recognised within ANU, nationally, and internationally as a world-class community of scholars.
Academic and research staff
APCD comprises a small team of renowned academics and research officers who specialise in a variety of areas relating to applied and theoretical diplomacy, including international law, international relations, political science, migration and human rights, UN diplomacy, international negotiation, conflict resolution and nuclear non-proliferation.
Our researchers, teachers and students are supported by a talented team of professional staff who provide a team-based approach to college administration.
The research activities of APCD extend into other parts of ANU and beyond, and are facilitated by a world-wide network of practitioners, policy makers and academics. The research program at ANU includes seconded researchers from outside the university, ‘in-residence’ professionals, and visitors from universities in Australia and around the world.
Applications close 31 May and 31 November each year. Applicants will be notified of their application outcome within thirty days of the next application closing date
PhD and doctorate scholars
APCD’s prestigious PhD program accepts candidates of the highest caliber who are expected to make a substantial contribution to the literature and discipline. A professional doctorate pathway is also available for candidates with a professional background in the practice of diplomacy.
