UTS boosts support for young researchers

11 August 2017

A record number of Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellowships have been awarded this year to UTS early career researchers – 16 fellowships in a range of research strengths across all faculties.

UTS Chancellor, Professor Vicki Sara said this year's projects range from improving practices in water management to food security, forensics and an advanced thought controlled, semi-autonomous wheelchair.

"These fellowships were introduced to attract the very best and brightest young researchers to UTS and they continue to drive research that will have real benefits for industry and communities," Professor Sara said.

"The breadth of research expertise and talent these fellowship recipients represent is tremendous."

One of the 16 recipients, Dr Xanthe Spindler, aims to develop new methods for recovering fingerprints from forensic evidence as a part of her research.
