Find a supervisor

An effective working relationship between you and your supervisor is an important factor in the completion of your research project and enjoying your research journey.

Ideally, your supervisor should be someone you can work with comfortably and who can stimulate your intellectual and research potential.

Although you will always assume the responsibility for your own learning and development, your supervisor will guide and assist you to develop and complete your research project. Their ongoing advice and support will help you reach your research, professional and personal goals.

While the final allocation of a supervisor will be confirmed by your school and faculty, it’s in your interests to take an active role in identifying a supervisor you would like to work with.

Identifying a potential supervisor

  1. Search our 'Find a supervisor' database to identify researchers in your field of interest. You can search by school, faculty, field of research, or keyword for a list of research active staff;
  2. Select the name of the researcher for more detailed information about their research activity, including qualifications, publications and grants. You’ll also be able to see if they are currently supervising any other research students;
