Our people



View a list of all academic staff in the Faculty of Science.

Welcome to the Faculty of Science research pages. At The University of Sydney we are fortunate to have an extraordinarily talented group of students and researchers, working with dedicated academic staff most of whom are world leaders in their research fields. This creates an environment that is stimulating and fun, and equips research students with the skills and confidence to engage in research anywhere in the world. The Faculty is also proud to currently act as host to several ARC funded fellows.

Research in the Faculty covers almost all areas of science and varies from the most fundamental to strongly industry linked. In these research pages you will find information on research areas, scholarship opportunities, be able to find a research supervisor, and view examples of the wide ranging career paths followed by our graduates. The Faculty has an exceptional range and quality of research infrastructure and there are very few research challenges that we will not take on. Please consider joining us!
