ARC funding outcomes

8 November 2013

The latest round of ARC funding has been announced, with University of Sydney projects to receive just over $37 million in funding over the next four years.

Five ARC grant schemes have been awarded for funding commencing in 2014, including four Discovery schemes:
Projects, Early Career Researcher, Indigenous, and Future Fellowships; as well as Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities.

University of Sydney projects received more funding from the Discovery Indigenous Scheme than any other institution for three projects, led by academics in the School of Molecular Biosciences; the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies; and the Faculty of Education and Social Work.

Professor Chris Dickman of the School of Biological Sciences, received the second-highest Discovery Projects grant for his study into the effects of wildfire on the native vertebrate population.
