New Investigator Program

The Organising Committee has created a program specifically for early career scientists conducting post-graduate or post-doctoral research.  The “New Investigator Program” aims to provide information on career development opportunities and offer the unique chance to meet our national and international speakers. The New Investigator Program includes the following events:

Equity in Science Forum

New Investigator Meet the Expert Breakfast 

Wednesday 10 March 2021 07:15 – 08:15 Arbour Room A2, Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre. 

This will allow invitees to talk with our invited speakers in a relaxed atmosphere over breakfast.

New Investigator Forum

Thursday 11 March 2021 14:30 – 15:30 Skyroom, Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre

This forum will address two topics: (1) the importance of resilience for a research career; and (2) career progression – when and how to seek funding and leadership positions. Our panel members cover each of these situations and will describe their personal career experiences in Australia and overseas. This session will be interactive with a large portion of time dedicated to questions from the audience.
