Graduate Research Coordinators

Graduate Research Coordinator (GRC) Registration

The Graduate Research Coordinator (GRC) serves a critical role in the overall experience of Higher Degree by Research (HDR) candidates. The GRC is expected to be an exemplar of graduate research good practice, with advanced knowledge of rules, policies and procedures related to HDR candidature and experience in HDR supervision.

Core responsibilities of a GRC are:

  • Making recommendations to the Dean of Graduate Research on HDR resource and candidature matters
  • Signing off on candidature milestones and issues pertaining to candidature management
  • Providing guidance to and/or mediation between candidates and supervisors on issues related to HDR candidature

For further information can be found in the Higher Degree by Research Graduate Research Coordination Policy.

GRC Nomination

To be appointed in a GRC role, the Head of School nominates an experienced academic staff member to the Dean of Graduate Research.

The nominee must:

  • Be a current supervisor or has been a supervisor within the 2-year period immediately preceding the nomination to be appointed as a GRC
  • Have significant supervisory experience, demonstrated by the number of candidates successful supervised to completion

A GRC is usually appointed for a 2-year term, however this may be extended in consultation with the Head of School.
