Uni Canberra research path review long time coming

Whatever happened to the University of Canberra’s review of its assistant professor scheme?, CMM hears you ask (oh, go-on)

Yes, that one, the scheme to boost the university’s research performance by giving participants seven years to produce a bunch of publications and thus qualify for continuing employment.

The scheme is considered by some at Uni Canberra a hard row to hoe and a deal to allow assistant profs to opt-out and apply for continuing employment was reached during enterprise bargaining this year. But as for the review, established in April, after much campus debate, all is quiet – but perhaps not for long. Word is that the report is imminent, with speculation that the scheme will survive.
