Category A Member research time support

Category A: Member research time support

Member research time support enables the appointment of sessional academic staff to provide a greater research fraction to ILWS members on CSU teaching-research appointments. Note that research fractions of successful applicants will increase for the purposes of the Research Performance Index.

The application must include: (1) the research activities to be undertaken by the applicant (which includes your existing EDRS required research plan for the year of application and additional activities that will be enabled by research time support), (2) tasks to be undertaken by sessional academic staff and associated justified budget, and (3) appropriate line manager (Head of School) endorsement.

There is no set limit to funds requested, but support will be allocated on a competitive basis, and applicants should consider the general effect of lost teaching expertise to gains in research outcomes. Applications should demonstrate how the support will deliver against ILWS’s areas of research strength.

This form should be submitted to ilwsgrants@csu.edu.au
Make sure you have completed all boxes and checked with your EDRS supervisor

  • Demonstration of a clear strategy for developing and improving the applicant’s and/or ILWS’s research capacity and/or capability
  • Promotion of the development of functional multidisciplinary research teams
