- CELEBRATE the diversity and inspirational STORIES of individuals in a global research community.
- Inspire others into research and PROPEL a positive research CULTURE.
We would LOVE to hear from YOU! If you are an HDR student or early career researcher and would like to share YOUR story then please get in contact. We are looking for short 1000 word reflections on your research passions and your narrative, your story, that has gotten you to where you are today.
We will showcase these stories on the website AND some will be selected to write a longer piece that expands on your research focus, your academic career and… These will be collated into a book, Rising Star Stories.
We choose diversity and inclusivity so we will welcome submissions from all genders, from all countries, even if English is not your first language.
