This section provides support and information on early career research opportunities, research publications and research ethics

Discovery Early Career Researcher Award

The Faculty of Arts is keen to support applications from promising early career researchers for the ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) scheme. The DECRA scheme is funded by the Australian government through the ARC, and supports highly promising early-career researchers for a period of three years. The objectives of the DECRA scheme are to support excellent basic and applied research and promote enhanced opportunities for diverse career pathways.

Future Fellows

The Faculty of Arts is keen to support promising Future Fellows to join our Faculty. The Future Fellowship scheme is funded by the Australian government through the Australian Research Council (ARC), and supports highly qualified mid-career researchers who typically receive a four-year fellowship. In addition, the ARC awards project funding which may be used for personnel, equipment, travel and field research costs directly related to the Future Fellow's research.

The Faculty of Arts is keen to support promising Early Career Researchers (ECRs) to join our Faculty.

Research publications

The Faculty annually compiles of list of all research publications published in the previous year. While this had formed part of the University’s annual Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) report in the past, the data gathered in the publications collection is an integral part of the annual academic performance appraisal process and essential to the regular Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) assessments.

The University uses Minerva Elements as collection tool and management system for its publications collection. All academics and honorary staff members are responsible for ensuring their publications are recorded in Minerva Elements.
