Find a supervisor

All graduate research degree candidates require a supervisor. As a prospective research student, it recommended you start actively searching for potential supervisors in your chosen field before you submit your application.

You can search for a supervisor by researcher name, area of expertise or by research centre name.

The right supervisor for you

The search will return a list of potential supervisors linking to their researcher profile giving you information such as:

  • Name, title and email address
  • Summary of research areas
  • Information on their research career, achievements, publications and grants
  • Previous research supervision undertaken

Enquiring with a supervisor

Once you have found a supervisor you're interested in, please use the "Enquire with this supervisor" link at the top right of the researcher profile page and complete the form.

Search tips

To search for a particular phrase in the keyword search, enclose your keywords in double quotation marks. For example "clean coal" will only return results that contain the exact phrase "clean coal".

If you enter keywords without the double quotation marks the search engine will return results with either one or both keywords.
