PhD and early to mid-career researchers

Join our research community at the Charles Perkins Centre

We nurture and encourage researchers of all levels: from PhD students, early and mid-career researchers, along with seasoned academics.

A community-led group of Charles Perkins Centre members and research and education hub occupants is dedicated to enhancing research development and social experiences of early and mid-career researchers.

The active community seeks to build a community of young investigators to foster new collaborations with colleagues across disciplines.

Events held throughout the year cover a wide range of topics and formats, including presentations sampling the breadth of Charles Perkins Centre-related research, seminars on scientific writing, research integrity and technical skills, and panels on careers both within and outside academia. Most events include catering and time to socialise and exchange ideas to facilitate collaboration, networking, and building the community.
