APEX Academic Supervisors

Prior to creating an application, please contact an APEX supervisor to discuss your proposal and to gain support for your application.

Whilst you can choose your individual research project, your topic must be aligned with the broad research themes of APEX and with the research interests of your prospective supervisor.
