Have your voice heard

We have now completed recruitment for our first survey that aimed to gain your insights and perspectives. Watch this space as results will be published soon!

In late 2022 through early 2023 we had over 170 participants who self-identified as Early or Mid-Career Researchers (EMCR) in Australia complete our online survey. We are analysing the results, which will shed light on the experiences and challenges faced by EMCRs. Our aim is to use these findings to advocate to improve the experience of EMCRs working in SHAPE disciplines in Australia.

This survey was cleared in accordance with the ethical review process of the University of Queensland and within the guidelines of the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research.

Our survey results are coming soon!

Thank you to those of you who participated

The survey study with 170+ EMCRs was conducted from late 2022 through early 2023 and is now closed. We are busy analysing the data with results to be released later this year.
