Women in Science Emerging Researcher (WISER) Award

* indicates a required field.

For outstanding research contributions in the physical or health and biological sciences in addition to emerging leadership and outreach contributions.

The Faculty of Science aspires to be a leader for gender equity in the higher education sector. One of the most significant challenges for gender equity in this sector is significant attrition of female staff within the early career stages, leading to low participation of women in senior research and leadership. The Women in Science Emerging Researcher (WISER) Award aims to address this issue by highlighting two amazing early (ECR) or mid-career (MCR) researchers each year and providing them with resources to further their research career.  The Faculty of Science WISER Award is a targeted award for female researchers who have excelled in their chosen research fields and are leaders of the future. The Faculty of Science also values the work that our female staff do to promote science within the community. Thus, a second eligibility criteria for the award will be the candidate’s engagement with outreach activities which can include school, community or government groups. There will be two awards each year, one for researchers working in the Physical Sciences and the other for researchers in the Natural and Health Sciences.
