Exciton Science Alumni Network


Each year the Centre graduates numerous PhD, Masters and Honours students, as well as sees its postdoctoral fellows off to new opportunities around the world. Being a part of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science is an invaluable opportunity for collaboration and professional growth, and that does not end after you leave.

The Centre values the experiences and knowledge of all its people and seeks to assist you throughout your career even after you leave us. As such we have created an alumni network to keep you in touch with what is going on at Exciton Science, provide pathways to new opportunities, and ask you to share your wisdom with current members through mentoring, speaking opportunities, and being involved in career advice panels.

If you would like to remain connected through our alumni network please register your details here.


For PhD students – recently completed or continuing – who are interested in experiencing what industry has to offer.
