Female academics encouraged to aim high
15 June 2009
Dr Sinthia Bosnic-Anticevich, Senior Lecturer in Pharmacy Practice in the Faculty of Pharmacy has been awarded one of the University of Sydney's inaugural Thompson Fellowships. This year, under the leadership of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Research, Professor Jill Trewhella, the University has established and offered two new Fellowships designed to promote equity and diversity at the University of Sydney. One of these is the Thompson Fellowship, addressing the under-representation of women in senior academic positions. The Thompson Fellowship is designed to provide opportunities for female academic staff to develop and strengthen their research, preparing them to apply for, and assume, senior academic roles in the near future. Professor Trewhella said the fellowships marked an important step towards making the University a female-friendly workplace.
