Graduate Director's Report - December 2017

Now that our new ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX) has officially started I have been getting questions about student affiliation, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to clear things up. Firstly, and most importantly, we cannot double count students. So, if you are affiliated with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science (ARCCSS), you will stay affiliated with ARCCSS for the remainder of your candidature. This means listing ARCCSS as your affiliation, alongside your home university/department, on all publications. For most of our new students, you would have been affiliated with CLEX. The only exceptions will be some of our honours students who are still being funded from ARCCSS and are therefore affiliated with ARCCSS. If you are unsure of your affiliation, drop me an email and check.

Regardless of your affiliation, please remember to continue to report all activities via the Clever database. This includes: centre funded travel, conferences and workshops attended, seminars given, engagement and outreach activities, prizes awarded, quotes and appearances in the media, and of course publications.

To access the online reporting tool, navigate here and enter details. If you are unsure of the username and password contact the admin at your hub.

The Graduate Program will run across both centres and all opportunities will be open to students affiliated with both centres. As CLEX progresses I will be expanding the Graduate Program into a Researcher Development Program which will offer development opportunities for all centre researchers, especially ECRs.
