 Virtual Research support group

In order to support the research activities of colleagues at the Peninsula campus , 'a virtual' research support group has been established with the aim of reading and commenting on research applications. 

This group includes people who are early career researchers who wish to gain experience through reading a range of research applications. 

Staff wishing to make use of the expertise if this group should contact the person directly (including at least one person being mentored, cc'ing in Marilyn Fleer when readers have been confirmed) to see if they are available to act as 'readers' of your grant.  Staff interested in being a part of this group as a reader, should contact Peninsula Research Coordinator Professor Marilyn Fleer
