Outstanding research that's well above world standard

澳大利亚新太阳城's research reputation was upheld by the most recent 2018 round of the Australian Government's Excellence in 研究 for Australia (ERA) initiative.

We received a perfect 5 out of 5 score in physical sciences, environmental sciences, biological sciences and in agricultural and veterinary sciences. This means our research performance in these areas is outstanding, well above world standard. It includes the studies of:

  • 纯粹数学
  • 光学物理
  • astronomical and space sciences
  • macromolecular and materials chemistry
  • ecological applications
  • 大气科学
  • environmental science and management
  • 生态
  • 进化生物学
  • 遗传学
  • horticultural production
  • computation theory and mathematics
  • electrical and electronic engineering.

Five broad areas were ranked as above world standard, including Mathematical, Chemical and Earth Sciences, 工程, and Information and 计算 Sciences.

The Faculty of Science and 工程 offers research training degrees leading to Master of 研究 and higher degrees by research leading to PhD.

研究 centres and groups

The Faculty of Science and 工程 includes many research centres and groups, and is home to over half of 澳大利亚新太阳城’s Centres of 研究 Excellence.

Faculty visiting researcher scheme

Visiting 研究 Fellowships are targeted at researchers of very high standing relative to their career stage, and who are invited by a Faculty academic staff member for a short period of time. The Faculty will provide up to $10,000 for each visitor to help cover costs of the visit, depending upon length of stay and travel costs. Larger amounts may be requested in exceptional circumstances and/or in combination with other schemes.


The University runs a safety net scheme to assist researchers who have been ranked in the top 10% of unsuccessful applications in the ARC Discovery and Linkage Programs, and Category 6 NHMRC Project, Development and 合作伙伴ship applications.

The Faculty of Science and 工程 also offers a safety net scheme for applications that fall into the 10–25% band of unsuccessful applications. The Faculty scheme provides up to $10,000 for anything that will make the proposal more competitive in subsequent rounds. Following the announcement of results for eligible funding schemes, the Faculty will contact you if your application fell within this band.
