Professor Deb Hodgson, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research & Innovation) and Chair of the UON Athena SWAN Self-Assessment Team welcomed the opportunity for UON’s female STEMM researchers.

“We are working hard to address the under-representation of women in STEMM disciplines at UON through the SAGE Athena SWAN pilot and other equity programs,” Deb said.

“I am very pleased to see the broader university working with providers with shared values and priorities,” Deb said.

“This is a great opportunity for our female STEM researchers and I encourage everyone to consider applying.”

Applicants must answer four questions about their STEM project or initiative in 500 words or less. Applications needs to be submitted via the Campus Travel website by Friday 20 October 2017.
