When you become part of Deakin's research community, whether it be in one of our Research Institutes, Strategic Research Centres or Faculties, you are joining a network that is increasingly being recognised around the world. You also become part of a genuinely cosmopolitan research community – with researchers coming from more than 40 countries!
Through early, then mid-career training and mentoring programs, our researchers are provided with excellent support - and stimulating experiences.
Deakin supervisors are passionate about supporting new researchers in their endeavours. Indeed, their enthusiasm and expertise are often cited as key drawcards by Deakin research students. This is reflected in recent annual student surveys where supervision is one of the highest ranking categories.
Most Deakin researchers have opportunities to work with partner collaborators nationally and internationally, and to present at international conferences. Most areas have an in-house seminar program, where students are encouraged to present to colleagues and peers, provides valuable presentation experience and research feedback in a supportive environment.
