Edith Cowan U expands targeted research, again

 The university announces nine research institutes and 40 research and support positions in-line with its major research themes, health, natural/built environment, society-culture and digital futures

It’s a new stage in a research plan VC Steve Chapman started when he arrived in 2015.  That year the university commenced recruiting 20 research professors, which took four years (CMM August 12 2015, CMM May 15 2019). Last year the university started hiring 40 four-year early/mid-career research fellows (CMM December 9 2019). And last week it appointed four leaders for each of the research themes.
