    Professor Simon Marginson was Professor of Higher Education in the Centre for the Study of Higher Education (CSHE) at the University of Melbourne until November 2013. He is currently Professor of International Higher Education at the Institute of Education, University of London, UK. He is also an Honorary Professorial Fellow of the University of Melbourne CSHE. Simon Marginson is Joint Editor-in-Chief of Higher Education, the principal world scholarly journal in higher education studies. He specializes in higher education, and comparative and international education, being one of the world’s most highly cited social science researchers in these fields.

    Academic career: After 15 years as a policy research officer for the national unions for students, teachers and academic faculty, Simon joined the Centre for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Melbourne as a Senior Lecturer and later Associate Professor/Reader (1993-1998). He completed his PhD in the Faculty of Education at the same university in 1996 and was awarded the Chancellor’s Prize for the outstanding thesis in the social sciences, arts and humanities that year. He chaired the editorial board of Australian Universities Review between 1995 and 2000. In 1998 he joined the Monash University Faculty of Education as Reader. He was appointed to a Personal Chair as Professor in 2000 and directed the Monash Centre for Research in International Education in 1999-2006. He also edited the Australian Journal of Education from 2000 to 2005. He became Fellow of the Australian College of Education (FACE) in 1994 and Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences Australia (FASSA) in 2000. In 2002 he was awarded a five year Australian Professorial Fellowship on the recommendation of the Australian Research Council (ARC). Simon returned to the University of Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education in July 2006 and delivered his inaugural professorial lecture on ‘The global positioning of Australian higher education: where to from here?’ on 16 October 2007. That month he became Honorary Fellow of the Australian Council of Educational Leaders (FACEL). He was Visiting Professor for four months at Hiroshima University in Japan in 2009. In 2011 he was appointed as one of the Co-ordinating Editors of Higher Education and in 2013 became joint Editor-in-Chief with Jussi Valimaa from Finland.

    Approach: Simon works in sociology and socio-cultural studies, political economy, political philosophy and history. His His work moves between observational qualitative empirical research, and conceptual studies, with each informing the other. He takes a critical approach to reflection and inquiry, and is especially concerned with the political implications of phenomena. He is interested in problems of agency freedom and equality, and in the potentials of knowledge, inquiry and education to augment human and social capacity, on a world scale. He is active in public communication and discussion as well as in academic scholarship and doctoral education. He works in local, national, international, regional and global forums. 
In the 1990s Simon’s work was focused primarily on markets, competition and public/private sector issues in education, and on Australian national policy. In the 2000s these interests were joined to inquiries into globalization and higher education, university rankings and international student security. The earlier inquiry into positional or status competition and its manifestations in higher education was further developed. Investigation of globalization continues in the 2010s, with emphases on the Asia-Pacific and on global civil society and governance, and has been joined to investigation of the fundamentals of higher education on a comparative basis. Simon is also interested in the role of research universities in acts and conditions of path-breaking creativity. He is currently preparing books and articles designed to theorize, synthesize and explain global relations and transformations in higher education, knowledge and creative work.

    
Simon has been awarded $1.9 million in national competitive grants and $2.9 million in all research project funding since 1995, including eight ARC Large and Discovery Project grants, and one Linkage Project grant.
