My University has been getting a bit of good news lately. A recent paper, “Ranking and Clustering Australian University Research Performance, 1998-2002”
lists the University of Adelaide
in the top two national research rankings based on academic staff numbers (ie output per staff memeber), below the University of Melbourne
and above the University of Western Australia
(where my mate Phil works). In terms of total research output, the University ranked seventh, and was the highest ranked South Australian university on both measures.
Also, Cosmos magazine
has published a list of Australia's top 10 young minds
. One of the top 10 was Tanya Monro
, Professor of Photonics at the University of Adelaide.
Also, I'm part of a team that got $25,000 to study factors that control nerve development. Wheee!
