The ARC is seeking nominations from senior research academics with extensive peer review experience and strong emphasis will be placed on multi-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary expertise. Nominations are welcome from all disciplines. A high regard is also placed on applicants who have strong institutional support to meet the commitment required from College of Expert members.

The ARC is committed to improving the gender balance of membership on ARC selection committees and encourages women to nominate. In addition, nominations from people of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin, and end-users across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors are particularly encouraged.

Nominations are open in the ARC Research Management System (RMS). Nominations will not be accepted directly from nominees (excepting those submitting as self-employed). Nominees who hold an honorary or adjunct appointment with a higher education institution are eligible to apply through that institution.

Late nominations will not be accepted. Amendments or replacements will not be accepted after the closing date and time, unless invited by the ARC.

Please refer to the Nomination Kit and Instructions to Applicants on the ARC website for submission instructions.
