Guided Research and Writing Placements (GRWPs) provide a research intensive professional development opportunity for anthropologists currently working in the native title sector through a three-week visiting fellowship program at the ANU in Canberra.

The placements are specifically aimed at providing anthropologists working outside academia with an opportunity to spend time researching an issue related to their practice in native title anthropology.

The GRWPs encourage engagement with academia and scholarship through a dedicated period of guided study. During the placement, successful applicants will undertake a small research project under limited supervision on a pre-determined subject of relevance to the practice of native title anthropology in Australia.

GRWPs are appointed at ANU Research Officer Grade 5.1(Research) and eligible to receive up to $2,500 for travel and accommodation expenses in order to support temporary relocation to Canberra. Office space, computer and email services, and access to ANU library resources will be provided.

The placements build practitioners’ theoretical knowledge, academic skills and professional networks and in doing so strengthen links between academic and applied research.
