SKILLS
Above: Students involved in the Student Showcase

International Skills Development and Student Seminar...
Continued from previous page ...

It was great to see strong interest from a range of executives in research and industry witnessing the showcase presentations.

The subsequent networking event was kicked off with a number of short five minute presentations from industry and research representatives. The presentations provided an insight into how each individual started out in research and the workforce and the opportunities available within their current fields.

Perhaps one of the most useful outcomes of this event was the personal advice passed on from industry representatives to the early career researchers.

The early career researchers were advised not to feel defined by their current research interests and specialist expertise. Rather, their strengths and attributes as researchers will make them valuable assets to a wide range of potential employers and they were encouraged to seek job opportunities that will expand their skill set and build valuable networks for the future.

BCIA supports this view and is confident that current research projects will create enthusiastic ambassadors for the Australian brown coal community and researchers who will continue to build cooperative relationships wherever their career takes them.

In this way, the research scientists that we foster will create valuable new opportunities for brown coal in Australia.

In the Skills section that follows, you can see information on where some of the students involved in brown coal over the past few years will be using their skills and expanding their careers.

BCIA Alumni Opportunity

Over the last few years, a number of early career researchers have been involved in BCIA funded projects and activities. We have tried to provide many opportunities to help them in furthering their education and networks within the brown coal area.

Many of these students are now writing up, or have recently completed their PhD projects, with some looking for their next job, and others may have recently started work in an academic or industry career.

We have included this section to update on what students who have worked on recent brown-coal projects are planning to do after their PhD.
Maybe you might have an opportunity that will be right for both of you!

  • Sharmen Rajendran - Looking for opportunities to contribute my skills and knowledge to the energy industry.
  • Baiqian Dai - Looking for a job where l can use my knowledge on coal blending gasification and combustion
  • Hirra Azher - currently seeking a position in the water treatment or energy industry
  • Mamun Mollah – I am looking for a position within Blast Furnace Coke area.
  • Adam Rady - looking for graduate and/or post-doctoral positions with an industry focus in energy
  • Karen Little - looking for a post-doctoral position to further investigate the benefits of lignite coal to agriculture.
