Swinburne has announced the recipients of the Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellowships for women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) disciplines.

The fellowships are designed to address the critical underrepresentation of women in STEM research and teaching. This program also supports Swinburne’s gender equity strategy.

The successful applicants include:

Dr Rosalie Hocking (Chemical Sciences)
Dr Mahnaz Shafiei (Electrical Engineering)
Dr Tatiana Kameneva (Biomedical Engineering) and
Dr Louise Olsen-Kettle (Applied Mathematics).

The recipients of the fellowship will be supported by a fellowship grant as well as through mentorship, research training and personal career development, with underlying on-going positions in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology.

“This fellowship scheme is evidence of our commitment and contribution to advancing gender equality in academia through coordinated and aligned research and academic strategy,” says Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Development) Professor Aleksandar Subic.

Swinburne is committed to advancing gender equality in academia and was one of the first Australian universities to join the Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) pilot to improve the promotion and retention of women and gender minorities in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) disciplines.
