Research and Teaching Celebrating Research

Celebrating Research @JCU

JCU proudly invites staff, students and the general public to participate in Celebrating Research @JCU. Events take place throughout the year to share our experiences and recognise our achievements.

Be inspired as JCU’s top researchers and academics share their expertise and showcase their research at JCU Inspiration on Tap.

Events  are held at relaxed public venues on alternating months in Townsville and Cairns.

3 Minute Thesis (3MT) is a competition developed by The University of Queensland to cultivate students' academic, presentation, and research communication skills.

JCU holds a public 3MT final in August each year.  The winner will represent JCU at the Asia-Pacific 3MT Final in September.

Previous JCU 3MT finalists and winners can be found here.

JCU recognises, encourages and rewards staff who excel in the supervision of students at the Doctoral, Research Masters and Honours level.

Each year, awards of $1,000 are offered to winners of the Advisor of the Year Awards for each of three categories:

  • Primary Advisor of the Year
  • Early Career Researcher of the Year, and
  • Advisory Panel of the Year.

Visit the Graduate Research School website for recipient lists and further information.
