ECU expands its elite-talent programme
When ECU VC Steve Chapman arrived he set up super-select research recruiting to hire 20 professorial-fellows. The last, aged-care expert Beverley O’Connell, joined in May (CMM, August 12 2015 and May 15 2019).
In July, the university expanded the idea, announcing it wanted to hire 40 early and mid-career research fellows over four year to work in core ECU areas. The first 12 are now hired.
