Research student support

Update regarding COVID-19

Due to concerns around COVID-19 and in the interest of safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our staff and students, our  research student support services will not be available face-to-face for the remainder of Semester 1, 2020. Please see further information below.

Research Student Support Co-ordinators

The Research Student Support Coordinators assist students and supervisors with confirmation of candidature requirements, milestones, reporting, changing supervisors, policy and procedure support, referrals and general advice. Appointments or advice via Zoom/ Teams, telephone or email is available. To contact your school’s coordinator, email grsstudentsupport@ecu.edu.au.

Research Advisers

Research Advisers help with the transition to research. The aim of this service is to support students in developing skills to effectively plan and carry out research, including: planning research projects and keeping on target; choice of methods and methodologies to suit research questions; research design; data management and analysis; interpreting, reporting and presenting findings; conceptual and theoretical issues in producing a final thesis. Appointments or advice via Zoom/ Teams, telephone or email is available. Our Research Advisers have also created excellent online qualitative and quantitative resources under the GRS Programs Blackboard site.

For Qualitative Research, please contact  Dr Neil Ferguson, Research Adviser (Qualitative) Ph: +61 8 6304 6047 or Email: n.ferguson@ecu.edu.au

For Quantitative Research, please contact Dr Chandra P. Salgado Kent, Research Adviser (Quantitative), Ph:  +61 8 6304 3705, Email: c.salgadokent@ecu.edu.au

HDR Communication Advisers

The HDR Communication Advisers help research students improve their ability to communicate their research. This is a key part of the journey to becoming independent researchers and is essential for both English speakers and students whose first language is not English. There are also free ‘English as an Additional Language’ workshops to support students from a Non-English speaking background. HDR Communication Advisers are available for one-to-one appointments in an online consultation. They can be contacted on hdrca@ecu.edu.au.
