Network for Women in Biology

Welcome to the Network for Women in Biology (NWB)

We aim to support women at ANU in various stages of their academic careers, including honours and PhD students up to Senior lecturers and Professors.

We aim for this website to be a central location for information such as ANU support to assist with childcare on fieldwork, funding available for conferences, advice on promotion, interesting events and more.

We hope you will find the information here useful, and we would love to hear what else you would like to see on this website. What do you wish you had known that you want to share with other women in biology? What support services do you think that other biologists might not have heard about? Please contact us with suggestions and feedback.
