Institute Student Reference Group (SRG)
The Telethon Institute Student Reference Group (SRG) was
formally established in 2004, combining several previous
arrangements which aimed to support research students, their
supervisors and other mentors at the Institute. "Research students"
in this context comprise research higher degree students, honours
students, and students undertaking a research project within an
undergraduate or postgraduate coursework degree.
The terms of reference of this group provide for support to Research staff and students and coordination of activities including: Student recruitment; liaison with enrolling Universities; policy development and the provision of advice on related matters.
The composition of the group includes the following members:
- Manager, People and Culture
- Learning and Development Manager
- Population Sciences Student supervisor
- Clinical/Biomedical Student supervisor
- Student database coordinator
- Aboriginal Research representative
- TICHR Student Circle committee
The TICHR Student Circle
The Institute's lively student community is embodied in the TICHR Student Circle, a group for students, run by students. They meet over an informal -provided- lunch once a month to touch base, have a chat and discuss any current issues students might be dealing with.
The Student Circle also aims to provide useful information to
students regarding travel funding, mentoring and getting access to
various research related resources.
The TICHR Student Circle has grown to not only provide a sense of community and togetherness for the students, but also to play an active role in supporting their professional development. Various events are run throughout the year with this aim in mind, including an annual Student Circle Research Symposium and the Student Circle Development Program.
We are committed to developing confident and capable researchers of the future.
The current committee includes:
- Cindy Branch-Smith
- Matt Cooper
- David Hendrickx
- Janice Wong
- Ben Wylie
