Research Support Officer
The Research Support Officer (RSO) assists in meeting the research goals of the School. The RSO assists potential applicants for ARC and other competitive grant funding for academic staff in the school, as well as potential fellowship applicants keen to have their fellowship hosted by SLAM. Applicants should also be aware of the assistance provided by Margaret Harris, the Faculty's Director of Research, who can provide strategic advice on the application.
The RSO is responsible for the collection and analysis of research activity data in the School and works with the Research Portfolio on the submission of research publications for the annual HERDC collection and as required for ERA processes.
Additionally, the Research Support Officer (RSO) manages the school's Research Support Schemes which take place throughout the year to help academic staff complete research publications and apply for grants listed on the Australian Competitive Grants Register.
The RSO is also involved in coordinating seminars and research workshops.

The Postgraduate Research Support Scheme application process is handled at the School level rather than the Faculty level. The School's PRSS budget will not be known until early April. If you are interested in applying for PRSS, please check back on the SLAM Scholarships page in early April.
PRSS funding is competitive and we expect a large number of applications. Please bear this in mind if you are planning to spend now and recoup costs through PRSS.
