You are still welcome to apply for the program. It is best if you can attend all the workshops, but we do acknowledge that people have competing commitments. The material from the workshops will be available, and you will have a partner to work with through the program who should be able to help you out. However, the program is built on experiential learning, meaning that you will gain the most if you are able to attend and fully participate in all workshops.
If we receive more applications than we have places available, we may prioritise applicants who are able to attend all sessions.

If we receive more applications than we have places available, we will use your responses to the EOI questions to help us determine the fit between your needs and what the program offers. We may also prioritise applicants who are able to attend all sessions.

The program is facilitated overall by the Organisational Development team, with a range of ‘guest experts’ to provide input in content areas. Guest speakers include University executives, senior academics, and experts in academic career development.

The program is specifically targeted at Level A or B staff, who are in approximately their first five years of employment following PhD completion. However, individuals whose doctorate was awarded more than five years ago, but whose academic career has been interrupted, may still be classified as Early-Career Academics. Career interruptions could include non-academic employment, misadventure, illness, or family and career responsibilities. If you are currently employed as a UQ academic staff member but have not completed your PhD, please contact the program coordinator, Jodee Allanson, to discuss your situation.
