Professor Ian Chubb AC: CSIRO Board Member

Professor Ian Chubb is the Chief Scientist for Australia.

Professor Ian Chubb was Vice-Chancellor of the Australian National University between 2001 and 2011. He has been President of the Australian Vice-Chancellors’ Committee, Chair of the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU) and a member of the:

Group of Eight Universities, Australia

Global Foundation Advisory Board.

Professor Chubb received a Master of Science in 1973; a Master of Arts status in 1974; and a PDoctorate of Philosophy in 1975, all at Oxford University in The United Kingdom.

Professor Chubb began his university career as a neuroscientist. He was the recipient of a number of academic awards and named fellowships at the University of Ghent and Oxford University. He has published widely and has taught science and medical students at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and supervised research students.

Professor Chubb was appointed Vice-Chancellor of The Australian National University in January 2001, having previously been Vice-Chancellor of Flinders University for six years (1995 to 2000). He was the Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Monash University from 1993 to 1995, for part of that time simultaneously holding the position of Foundation Dean of the Faculty of Business and Economics. From 1986 to 1990, Professor Chubb was Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wollongong.

In June 2006 Professor Chubb was appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia for service to higher education including research and development policy.

Between 1990 and 1993, Professor Chubb was the full-time Chair of the Higher Education Council (HEC), and concurrently Deputy Chair of the National Board of Employment, Education and Training. He served as a member and, subsequently, Chair of the HEC in a part-time capacity from 1994 to 1996. He also served as Interim Chair, then Deputy Chair, of the National Committee for Quality in Higher Education from 1993 to 1994.
Professor Chubb was Chair of the Group of Eight Universities in 2004 and 2005 and has served in various capacities on the National Health and Medical Research Council and the Australian Research Committee.

Professor Chubb’s contribution to the development and implementation of higher education policy was recognised in June 1999 when he was made an Officer of the Order of Australia. In April 2003 he was awarded the Centenary Medal for service to Australian society through tertiary education and university administration. In June 2006 Professor Chubb was appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia for service to higher education including research and development policy.

Professor Chubb was appointed to the CSIRO Board in August 2008.

So as we can see Australia’s Chief Scientist has a great academic record mainly in Health, Business and Economics and Education, but NO Climate Science background, of course it is argued the Government have that in their Economist and their Zoologist, but I think I will stick to scientists that walk the walk and know what they are talking about
