Curtin University is seeking a new chief information officer, with incumbent CIO Christian Rasmussen presumably on the move after five-and-a-half years after his role was advertised.
The university said in the job listing that it’s after a “dynamic” CIO to influence and lead its digital agenda, capabilities and infrastructure to complement its global goals.
Curtin said its transformation and rise in global academic rankings over the last five years has been significant and a new CIO would be well placed to shape and lead new initiatives.
The new CIO will oversee the the development of technology in Curtin’s teaching, research and commercial operations as it continues to implement initiatives in data analytics, student experience and partnership initiatives.
Curtin is also in the process of deploying smart campus technology.
The position reports to the chief operating officer and is responsible for IT solutions across the Curtin’s five campuses, including locations in Singapore, Dubai, Malaysia and the recently opened Mauritius campus.
Curtin’s IT Services team, led by the CIO, consists of over 300 employees.
Curtin University and Christian Rasmussen have been approached for comment.
