Early Career Researchers day

Career development at the University of Sydney

Bringing together up-and-coming early career researchers from around Australia to discuss a range of professional development topics, as well as providing an opportunity to network with peers from across the country.

Who: Early career academics with research interests in Southeast Asia
When: 9.30am-1.45pm, Saturday 18 May 2019 
Where: Room 3020, Abercrombie Building H70, University of Sydney

Capitalising on the leading and emerging Southeast Asia scholars at the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre for Politics in Action 2019, we invite you to join us for a professional development workshop at the University of Sydney. 

This year, the workshop will focus on publishing for impact. Publishing is an important measure of research output and it is critical to achieving impact with your research. In addition, a strong publication record is key to a successful career as a researcher. In this workshop, invited speakers will discuss the realities of working for impact, being strategic when publishing, and demonstrating the impact when applying for promotion or new positions. 

This workshop also aims to bring together early career researchers (excluding postgraduate students) from around Australia, who are focused on Southeast Asia, as well as providing an opportunity to network with peers from across the country.

Most importantly, this will be an informal setting for you to share ideas (and possibly even frustrations!) with fellow academics and ask questions of those who have gone before you.


SSEAC is offering travel grants for early career academics outside of Sydney to attend this workshop. This grant is intended to contribute towards transportation and accommodation costs to attend the workshop. 

In the case that a successful grantee does not live in the same location as their home institution, the grant amount awarded will be based on the location of home institution.

Academics who receive a travel grant must also attend SSEAC’s Politics in Action forum, Friday 17 May. 

Self-funding participants are welcome to attend for the day without attending the Democracy in Southeast Asia Roundtable.
