Welcome to the Macquarie University Supervisor Register (MQSR)

Note to potential candidates:

Welcome to the Macquarie University Supervisor Register (MQSR). MQSR is a listing of Macquarie academic staff who have completed designated research supervisor training requirements for appointment to Principal Supervisor. You can use the search tool at the bottom left of this page to search for a potential Principal Supervisor. You can also visit Faculty to explore their research strengths, or do a Google Scholar search to see who at MQ is publishing research in an area of interest to you. Potential research candidates are urged to contact individual research supervisors to ascertain their availability to take on new students, or to contact the Faculty Associate Dean Higher Degree Research.

MRES candidates should talk the the Faculty Director of MRES as potential MRES supervisors may not be listed in the MQSR.

Note to potential HDR Supervisors:

Please visit the and click on the tab that provides information about Orientation. This will help you understand the choices you have to develop your career as an HDR Supervisor at MQ. If you have any questions about what orientation pathway is right for you, please contact Please note that MQSR is a corporate system for registering supervisors. Any personal details such as home phone, private email address and private websites should not be entered.

The HDR Supervision Policy and the MQSR are in transition:

The HDR Supervision Policy, which provides the rules that govern the MQSR, is currently being revised. Our hope is that the new policy will be in place at the start of 2018. During this process, the MQSR will also be in transition as we need to have a searchable database that is aligned to the proposed new policy. To understand more about the changes taking place, please visit our Blog at

Limitations of the MQSR data-base

The MQSR data-base has important limitations. For example, you may find that your name appears in the data-base with an old School or Faculty name. We know that these problems exist, and our plan is to phase the MQSR out in 2018. The MQSR is an old data-base, and it's functionality is limited. We ask you to be patient while we go through the transition. During this time, we can respond to individual requests for data to be updated, but we do not aim to overhaul all the data. If you have a pressing request for your data to be updated, please

If you have questions about the planned transition of the use of MQSR to the use of the Research Hub (PURE) please contact
