Our accredited researchers are the heart and engine of the CRA. It is their expertise that makes us ‘a cut above’ when it comes to delivering high quality research outcomes. Under our Researcher Accreditation Policy academics can be accredited at three levels according to professional status. They are:
- Research Associate – An early career researcher (up to 5 years following doctoral graduation).
- Research Fellow – A mid-career researcher (5+ years following doctoral graduation with an established peer reviewed publication record).
- Senior Research Fellow – A senior academic by designation (e.g. Prof.), publication track record, or by attracting significant grant money. Such a person will typically be known in national and/or international forums.
If you wish to apply for accreditation please contact our Research Co-ordinator, Dr Stephen Reid.
In addition, we are currently developing the breadth of research areas that our accredited researchers work in. Areas of interest extend from the role of religion in society, to wellbeing, and to flourishing communities, including the role of education in bringing this about. We also have expertise in research methods as its own specialist area.
If you, or your organisation, has strategic needs which research could assist with please consider our accredited researchers.
