We also aim to identify pathways to include Indigenous Australian experts who have experience and expertise outside formal University education among our academic teaching and research staff.

Excellence in Diversity Fellowship

To support increasing the diversity of our community, the Faculty of Science recently launched a new two-year fellowship for Indigenous researchers.

The Excellence in Diversity Fellowship (Indigenous) was designed to attract, support, and retain outstanding early career researchers with significant potential for research, community impact and contribution to workplace culture.
