Guidance for setting up your UWA Profile and adding publications to your profile and the Repository.

Add additional titles, pronouns and your academic degree

Staff titles are synchronised from the UWA HR system, Alesco. Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students' titles are synchronised from studentConnect. For information on how to get your synchronised title changed, see our FAQ 'Which profile fields are synchronised from other systems and how can I change them?' However, you can add additional titles, personal pronouns and academic degrees (including post-nominals) in the UWA Profiles and Research Repository. These will display under your name on your public profile.
