Welcome to NECTAR, an independent space for Early Career Academics at The Australian National University

NECTAR is an independent space created by, and for, Early Career Academics at ANU.  It is a direct channel of communication between early career academics and the University Executive, effecting changes that ensure ANU continues to be an attractive workplace for early career academics.

Attending NECTAR events and joining in project development are great ways to meet early career academics from right across ANU. Build support networks, develop your ideas, build confidence, and acquire some of the skills and knowledge to become a future leader.

ANU staff are invited to learn more about NECTAR, what we do and how you can get involved.
