The Academic staff of the School is currently made up of about 20 staff on 'continuing' appointments involved in teaching and research and around 100 'fixed term' research-only staff. The research staff include 6 Federation Fellows, out of 15 in the University of Sydney, plus 5 ARC Australian Professorial Fellows, 5 QEII Fellows and over 60 postdoctoral fellows and research associates.
Of course, the other integral part of the research effort of the School is its 100 Postgraduate Research Students.
In addition, retired staff and staff from outside the School are often involved in research here. They are designated as Honorary associates or Adjunct staff.
Up-to-date lists of staff and students associated with each of the Research Groups can be accessed by selecting the appropriate Role (staff. postgraduate student,... etc.) and Research Group on the People@Physics page. Many groups will have their own list on their Research pages.
