Research Professional

Research Professional is the preferred system used by the James Cook University research community to search for funding opportunities and funding related news. Every research student and employee has an account created and is automatically assigned to a default faculty, school or discipline from where they can share funding searches specific to their field.

Each user has a profile where they can bookmark their created funding searches (and/or adapted searches based on example searches) and create alerts to receive emails with funding opportunities based on these search criteria. Users can also assign themselves to more than one group within JCU.

If you have any questions about the research opportunities, please call Research Services on (07) 4781 5011.

For questions on Research Professional, please contact the Manager, Research Information or email
