Academic staff members may make contributions in all four criteria and applications will respect the following parameters (Percentages may be varied in accordance with academic specialisation or work focus). Teaching and Learning & Research and Research Training - each rated at least 25% and in aggregate will not exceed 80%; and Engagement & Leadership and Service - in aggregate, will be a minimum of 20% and a maximum of 50% hr.unimelb.edu.au/academic-promotions
