EMCR events and opportunities

Early- and mid-career researchers may be interested in the following events, networks and other opportunities.

Think Tanks

The Academy’s Theo Murphy High Flyers Think Tanks bring together early- and mid-career researchers from a broad range of disciplines to think about novel applications of science and technology to issues of national significance, identify issues and gaps in current knowledge, and propose solutions.

Frontiers of Science

The aim of the Theo Murphy Frontiers of Science symposia is to bring together the very best young Australian scientists in multidisciplinary areas of science to discuss emerging technologies and identify potential opportunities for future research collaboration.

Science at the Shine Dome

Science at the Shine Dome is an annual three-day event held by the Australian Academy of Science. It incorporates the Academy's annual general meeting, induction of new Fellows, presentation of awards and a scientific symposium. In addition there is a special program for EMCRs including professional development workshops and the opportunity to network with Fellows of the Academy.

Science Pathways

Science Pathways is the national meeting of the Australian Early- and Mid-Career Researcher (EMCR) Forum—the national voice of Australia's future scientific leaders. It focuses on helping EMCRs gain the skills they need to build a successful career in science.


See the Academy's page containing a range of opportunities for scientists. There are honorific awards for recognition specifically for EMCRs, as well as research funding and travel opportunities that may be of interest.
