UQ wants to create a culturally safe and supportive environment to nurture Indigenous HDR candidates, which is why the Graduate School and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Unit at UQ have partnered to create a team focused on Indigenous Researcher Development. The program below was developed by Associate Professor Stephanie Gilbert, Indigenous Researcher Development Coordinator, to support you in your program and on towards your post HDR career.
