The Kimberley Foundation Minderoo Chair of Archaeological Science is a new Chair within the School of Earth Sciences that will provide leadership in the field of Archaeological Science at the University of Melbourne.

The Chair has been established through the generous support of the Minderoo Foundation, Allan Myers, the Kimberley Foundation Australia (KFA) and the University of Melbourne to provide an enduring focal point for collaborative research and academic excellence in this field.

The scope of the Chair will encompass the development and application of scientific methods to the study of Indigenous heritage in Australia and archaeological research more broadly, including an initial focus on understanding rock art and its environmental and archaeological context in the Kimberley region of northwestern Australia. The Chair is expected to collaborate closely with other groups within the university and elsewhere in Australia who are working on related research areas, especially in Western Australia.
