Graduate Research School Register of Advisors

Register of Advisors

James Cook University is committed to quality research supervision.

JCU staff who supervise research students must be on the Register of Advisors. To be included on the Register, staff must apply by completing the Application for Admission to the Register of Advisors form.

The table below shows all staff currently listed on the Register of Advisors, grouped by School and Organisational Unit, and within the unit sorted alphabetically by surname.

Advisor Mentor: Each Advisory Panel should include at least one person with Advisor Mentor Status on the Register of Advisors, where the Primary Advisor is new to the role or additional supervisory support is indicated.

Primary Advanced: The Primary Advanced Advisor chairs the Advisory Panel and takes the lead in day-to-day supervision of the candidate. They should be on the Register of Advisors. The Primary Advanced Advisor should be a member of the academic staff (or adjunct staff) of the College in which the candidate is enrolled, or be otherwise formally contracted and accountable to the University for supervisory duties. An advisory team that includes a Primary Advanced Advisor does not require an Advisor Mentor. This level is no longer available but existing people on this level can remain.

Primary: Each Advisory Panel should include at least one Primary Advisor who is a member of the academic staff (or adjunct staff) of the College in which the candidate is enrolled or is otherwise formally contracted and accountable to the provider for supervisory duties and is on the JCU Register of Advisors with Primary Advisor or Advisor Mentor Status.

Secondary: Each Advisory Panel should include at least one Secondary Advisor who is a member of the academic staff of the University and is on the Register of Advisors. Additional Secondary Advisors who are not on the Register may be appointed because of their expertise. These Secondary Advisors may be external to the University and are not required to apply for admission to the Register of Advisors.

For information on the eligibility requirements please refer to the HDR Supervision Procedure.
