Following the recent announcement of the retirement of ACICIS Founding Director, Professor David T. Hill AM, ACICIS Study Indonesia is inviting interested parties to enquire about the Consortium Director’s role that will be advertised through The University of Western Australia in the coming months.

The Australian Consortium for ‘In-Country’ Indonesian Studies (ACICIS) is a non-profit, national educational consortium established in 1994 to develop and coordinate high-quality, semester-long study programs at Indonesian partner universities for Australian university students. The consortium is coordinated by a secretariat based at UWA and governed by a National Reference Group consisting of senior academic Indonesia-specialists and international student mobility professionals representing the consortium’s 27 member universities.

With the support of the Australian Government’s New Colombo Plan (NCP) Mobility Program scheme, ACICIS offers study tours, an intensive language short course, professional practicum (internship) programs and semester-long programs in more than ten academic disciplines.

The Consortium Director’s primary role is to provide executive leadership and strategic vision to ACICIS and to advocate on its behalf to government, business, the tertiary sector and the community.

Reporting to the ACICIS National Reference Group, the Consortium Director is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the consortium’s operations— both in Australia and Indonesia— and guiding its operations in accordance with the provisions of the ACICIS Joint Venture Agreement and the directives of the National Reference Group.

The Consortium Director is responsible for identifying new markets, growing the organisation and planning for a post NCP environment. The CD cultivates an organisational environment that facilitates and promotes the discussion, development, initiation and management of ‘in-country’ study programs within Indonesia for the benefit of students enrolled at consortium member institutions.

ACICIS would welcome enquiries from a range of backgrounds for the coming position. For more information on the role and to register your interest ahead of recruitment commencing in the coming months, please contact Dr David Bourchier at or on +61 8 6488 2074 or Ms Janelle May at or on +61 8 6488 6679 by the end of March.
