Top jobs at Murdoch University

Murdoch University is in the market for more than a new provost (CMM February 12). A learned reader advises Vice Chancellor Eeva Leinonen is looking for a chief of staff. And Chief Operating Officer Darren McKee is recruiting a deputy. Unlike the provost position, both these jobs are open to external applicants.

Murdoch U observers say a strong candidate for the provost post is DVC Education Romy Lawson. Professor Lawson was Director of Learning, Teaching and Curriculum at the University of Wollongong from July 2013 to May ’16, she moved to Edith Cowan U as PVC Learning and Teaching in May ’16 and took up her present post at Murdoch U in August that year.
