Research Excellence Awards – call for applications

The Early Career Research Excellence Award (ECREA) recognises and promotes excellence and research leadership potential among our emerging researchers. The award aims to enable early career researchers to further their current research, establish stronger links with researchers in other parts of the world, or embark on new fields of research. Early career researchers who completed their PhD or equivalent no more than eight years ago and are in the early years of developing a research career are eligible to apply. This is a University Research Committee (UARC) award and there are six awards annually, of up to $25,000 per award.

The Research Excellence Awards (REA) recognise individuals and small research teams for single projects/programmes which have made outstanding contribution to one or more academic disciplines and/or fields of study in the last five years. Most University academic staff are eligible to apply. There are usually up to three awards annually. Each awardee (individual or team) receives a medal designed by Kate Newby and $5000 as a prize or grant.

Applications to both Awards should be submitted to Jing Liu at the Faculty office - Monday 6 March 2017 (midnight).

Please contact either Jing or Wendy ( if you have any queries.
