At the NECTAR retreat Prof Brian Schmidt invited NECTAR to write more ‘well structured’ letters to him, like the one we wrote on the Futures Scheme. We are currently investigating equitable treatment and inclusion of casual staff. See more here.

Why get involved with NECTAR…

Attending NECTAR events and joining in project development are great ways to meet Early Career Academics (includes PhD students and Mid-Career Academics) from across ANU. Take charge of your own network, develop your ideas, build confidence, and acquire some of the skills and knowledge to lead the future.

Family members are actively encouraged to attend.
