Faculty of Science awarded Australian Research Council funding
Faculty of Science researchers will share in more than $12 million dollars of funding from the latest ARC round of grants.
Five researchers received Discovery Early Researcher Awards: Dr Ashleigh Hood, Dr Candice Boyd, Dr Tobias Ide, Dr Yaping yang and Dr Gufang Zhao will each receive three years of funding to develop their own research programs.
The Faculty was also awarded 23 ARC Discovery Projects across the biosciences, chemistry, geography, mathematics and statistics, and physics.
Additionally, the School of Physics received a Linkage Infrastructure Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) grant, led by Professor Geoff Taylor, to enable the future of the Australian collider physics program with CERN in Europe and SuperKEKE in Japan.
Professor Rob Scholten and Professor Roger Rassool each received ARC Linkage grants to build industry-focussed research on laser technology and stress resilience in pigs, respectively.
