The ARC is seeking nominations from suitably qualified and experienced individuals, with peer review experience, to join the 2021 ARC College of Experts. 

Nominations for the Australian Research Council (ARC) College of Experts in 2021 are now open in Research Management System (RMS) and will close at 5.00pm (AEST) on Wednesday, 15 July 2020.

The ARC is committed to improving the diversity and gender balance of membership of the ARC College of Experts and particularly encourages nominations from women; Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders; and end-users across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. 

Nominations are welcome from all disciplines, with strong emphasis placed on multi-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary expertise. 

A high regard is also placed on applicants who have strong institutional support to meet the commitment required from College of Expert members.

Nominations are open in 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 College of Experts page for more information or email any queries to
