Early Career Researchers Day

Career development at the University of Sydney

Bringing together up-and-coming early career researchers from around Australia to discuss a range of professional development topics, as well as providing an opportunity to network with peers from across the country

Please note this event has been cancelled. 


Capitalising on the leading and emerging Southeast Asia scholars at the University of Sydney for Politics in Action 2020, early career researchers engaging with Southeast Asia are invited to join us for a half day workshop on the theme of teaching.

Many early career researchers find themselves with substantial teaching loads or in casual teaching employment. This workshop is an opportunity to discuss some key aspects of teaching such as pedagogy, supervising doctoral students and using tools to support your teaching practice. 

The workshop will also include networking opportunities, so you can meet fellow early career researchers with complementary research interests.

Further information

The workshop is open to any early career research scholars both at the University of Sydney and other universities around Australia. You must also meet the following criteria: 

  • Your research is linked to a country (or countries) in Southeast Asia (defined as Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Timor Leste, and Vietnam). 

  • You are a SSEAC member. If you are not a member of SSEAC, you can join us here for free.

SSEAC is offering 8 travel grants to early career researchers residing outside of Sydney to attend this workshop. This grant is intended to contribute towards transportation and accommodation costs to attend the workshop.

In the case that a successful grantee does not live in the same location as their home institution, the grant amount awarded will be based on the location of home institution.

Unfortunately we are not in a position to award grants to researchers at non-Australian institutions or ECRs who are based outside of Australia.

ECRs who receive a grant are also required to attend SSEAC’s Politics in Action Forum on Friday 8 May 2020.
