Professorial Lecture Series
The Professorial Lecture Series provides an opportunity for CDU's academics to discuss their specific areas of interest, from ecosystems through to history.
Research is a major strength of Charles Darwin University (CDU), focussed on tropical, desert and Indigenous knowledge.
Over the period of 2006-2010, CDU's external research income increased fom $18.7 million to $32.8 million.
For the most recent reference year, where sector data is available, the University was first among all Australian universities on the measure of total research income per full-time equivalent research staff member.
A recent analysis of Australia's and New Zealand's top research institutions for Environmental Sciences and Ecology by Thomson Reuters, places CDU fourth in Australia for research quality.
This assessment was based on citation impact (the average number of citations per paper) over the period of 2000-2010.
The quality research at CDU has also been recognised in the 2010 SciMago World Report, which ranks CDU at the top of the Australian University sector on quality of publications (Q1), with 63% of CDU's outputs (2004-2008) appearing in the top quartile of ranked journals.
Staff at CDU provide a wealth of experience for stakeholders and students undertaking collaborative projects in areas of the University's research strengths. Teams are formed to tackle complex issues that cross traditional boundaries of individual academic disciplines.
The research foci of CDU are in:
- Environment and Livelihoods
- Human Health and Well-being
- Social and Public Policy
- Creative Industries
- Indigenous Knowledges
