Pioneering Women Lectureships

Applications are open for the Pioneering Women Lectureships (PWL) scheme.

The scheme provides $100,000 grants for computer scientists who will contribute to the research and academic environment at ANU. Join us in shaping a new intellectual agenda to reimagine the use of technology in the world.

Your impact

Women are invited to apply as part of their application to the ANU School of Computing tenure track positions. The PWL grant will fund ambassadorial, mentoring, and supervision activities designed to support women in computer science and attract more women to the discipline.
Help usher in a new era of collaboration and innovation by maximising the contributions of women. Activities can include workshops and symposia, stipends for female students, outreach and promotions, teaching and learning activities, hackathons, datathons; the opportunities are up to you! 

How to apply

Application is by self-nomination. Include a  one-page document of your past pioneering activities (research, teaching, or service) as well as plans for supporting women in computer science with your tenure track application pack.   
Candidates for the Pioneering Women Lectureships will be assessed after acceptance to the tenure track program, and the outcome will be announced soon afterward.
