An Associate Investigator is a member employed at an Australian or overseas research institution. They are self-nominated or nominated by an OPTIMA Chief Investigator. The OPTIMA Executive Committee approves them. An Associate Investigator is not a Chief Investigator but does have significant engagement with OPTIMA in some way. For example, this could be by engaging in a substantial and ongoing research project in optimisation, collaborating in an optimisation project with an OPTIMA Chief Investigator or by being a joint supervisor of an OPTIMA student. Associate Investigators are appointed for renewable two-year terms.
