The Early-Career Academic Development Program is designed to complement your highly developed technical skills, by helping you to develop the career planning and related interpersonal skills necessary to transition from being a leading academic to being an academic leader. The program is experiential in nature, meaning you not only gain knowledge, but also learn through doing and reflecting.

The program targets Level A or B staff, in approximately their first five years of employment following PhD completion. This stream of the program is for Teaching & Research/Research Only/Teaching-focussed/Clinical academic staff.
