ARC LP Expert to visit on Fri 21 October
Presented by Professor Elizabeth Kendall
The Faculty of Education and Arts is pleased to announce that Professor Elizabeth Kendall from Griffith University will present a seminar on the ARC LP scheme at the Callaghan campus. Professor Kendall has been awarded an impressive total of seven ARC LP grants and has established productive research partnerships with state and local government and the not-for-profit sector.
Professor Kendall is also the current Chair of the ARC’s Social, Behavioural and Economics Sciences (SBE) panel. She will share the lessons she has learned since joining the ARC College of Experts and will answer questions about the LP scheme with particular reference to the SBE panel.
Professor Kendall runs a collaborative research program at Griffith University with several significant partners including Queensland Health, General Practice Queensland, Logan City Council and Youngcare. She manages a research team of 30 researchers and has attracted over $17 million in research grants and consultancies. She has over 100 publications in high impact journals such as Social Science and Medicine, American Journal of Public Health, Rehabilitation Psychology, Disability and Rehabilitation and has produced over 50 industry reports.
This is the fifth in our workshop series presented in collaboration with the Faculty of Science and IT that aims to provide information, ideas and inspiration about ARC LP by hearing from researchers who have had success with the scheme.

ARC presentation for HCA academics
Professor Andrew Wells
WHEN: Friday 11 March, 10am to 12noon.
WHERE: Isabella's (upstairs)
RSVP: To Kristy Rocavert email@example.com
Morning tea will be provided
In this presentation Professor Andrew Wells will share information about the funding opportunities available in different ARC programs for HCA academics, clarify questions about assessment processes and explain the recent streamlining of the Discovery Projects and Future Fellowship schemes.
He will also discuss the performance and success rates for HCA applications across all ARC schemes, which will be of interest to many researchers, and conclude with Q&A.
Professor Wells has a strong understanding of the ARC and the humanities and arts sector. He has held four ARC grants and has been a highly active RHD supervisor-with around 25 completions to his credit.
Such a visit will prove invaluable to those researchers who are considering an ARC application in the future and wondering how recent changes will affect them. It is not often we get to ‘tap into’ the knowledge of those inside the ARC. I encourage you to attend this session and to bring your questions and issues.
Professor Andrew Wells joined the ARC in February 2009. Before joining the ARC, he was Dean of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Wollongong for five years.
Professor Wells is a graduate of Monash University (BA Hons, MA) and the Australian National University (PhD). He has taught a wide range of undergraduate and graduate courses in politics, history, economic history, Asian studies and Australian studies at Monash University, Melbourne University, the Australian National University and the University of Wollongong. Professor Wells is published widely on Australian economics, and labour and intellectual history. His current research interests concern comparative studies of Australian and South East Asian labour history, most recently focusing on imperial hegemony and colonial labour-a major, multi-authored study on the commodification of colonial labour is close to completion. Professor Wells has previously been an active member of the Executive of the Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities. In addition, he has a longstanding interest in interdisciplinary studies, substantial and longstanding management experience, and a great capacity for strategic thinking.
This visit follows on from the highly successful session organised last year in conjunction with ERIN with the outgoing Chair of the SBE panel, Professor Barbara Comber, who spoke to academics from Education, the Social Sciences, Psychology, Economics, Business and Law.
