Join Flinders – Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor Robert Saint


Research at Flinders explores some great fundamental questions, and tackles some of the most important real world challenges of our time. Our expertise is broad. From science, engineering,
technology, and medicine, to the humanities, social
sciences, and creative arts. With innovation, a thirst for knowledge, and a drive to impact
positively on people’s lives, underpinning all we do. Whether it’s cleaning
mercury from the environment, better detection of cancers, harnessing the power of nanotechnology, or influencing governments
to develop better policies, Flinders research is making a difference to local, national, and
international communities. The National Research Assessment Exercise, Excellence in Research for Australia, rates 90% of Flinders research is at or above world standard, and our significant and growing presence in research and innovation is recognised in Australia
and internationally. It’s an amazing atmosphere to work in, because it’s so multi-disciplinary. It’s so vibrant. We have an amazing network of people. There’s a lot of cross collaboration. There’s a lot of help. This is all backed up by remarkable PhD students that have come into the research group who have that same passion and drive not just to do a PhD, but to do a PhD and make a difference. It really is what makes the University the strength that it is. It’s all about the people. And it’s about the atmosphere of generosity and curiosity, that defines the research environment at Flinders University. Being at Flinders has really allowed me to reach out and follow
my dream essentially. Working at Flinders has given every opportunity for me, my students, and our national groundwater centre that we can possibly have ever expected. You hear the word creative used a lot, but Flinders is a genuinely
creative place to work. Flinders Research is changing the world. Let us change yours for the better.
