Do you have an interest in the science of risk and uncertainty?


Approximately 60 early- and mid-career researchers (up to 15 years post-PhD, excluding career interruptions) will be chosen from a diverse range of science and social science disciplines. Together they will discuss how we assess, understand and address risk in relation to real world events. Internationally renowned senior scientists will also provide insights into current perspectives in the field.

Then apply to take part in the 2016 Theo Murphy High Flyers Think Tank An interdisciplinary approach to living in a risky world to be held in Canberra on 20-22 July by the Australian Academy of Science.


What previous attendees of Theo Murphy High Flyers Think Tanks have said:

“I feel like I developed 10 years of industry-relevant knowledge in three days.”


“I was offered a guest lecturing job, I was asked to collaborate on two new papers and I walked away with 4 business cards for future work.”


“I gained experience in negotiating/navigating large and complex issues with an interdisciplinary group. We rarely get the opportunity to develop or practice skills required to develop interdisciplinary projects – this Think Tank provided a unique and valuable experience.”


“I came away with a lot of enthusiasm and bubbling with ideas. Thank you.”


Find out more and apply to attend this year’s Think Tank by 31 March. Applicants will be notified of the selection outcomes by 30 April. If you require any further information please contact Sandra Gardam on 02 6201 9426 or via email
