We are a network working together to improve the visibility of research staff within UWA, and striving to enhance their work environment and conditions of employment.

The UWA Researchers' Association started as a small, informal network of research staff who came together as a result of an initiative arising out of the recommendations of the 2000 UWA Lake Report on research staff.

Following a university-wide meeting of research staff early in 2001, this small network began working together to improve the visibility of research staff within the University community, and to enhance their work environment and conditions of employment. The overall objectives of the Association are to:

  • provide non-tenured career researchers at UWA with elected representatives
  • provide a support group for career researchers by fostering networking and awareness of diverse issues relating specifically to career researchers
  • act as a lobby group regarding issues pertinent to non-tenured career researchers.
