Opportunities

Post-doctoral fellowships are advertised on individual research group webpages when we have them. In addition, Postdoctoral Fellowships for both Australian and international applicants are available through a number of sources. These take a bit of planning, so interested applicants should contact prospective research groups 2-3 months before the deadlines.
  • Australian Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowships are 3 or 4 year fully funded fellowships for early career researchers. Applications for these are due in March each year, with the position beginning the following calendar year.

  • Australian Research Council Super Science Fellowships is a new scheme for junior researchers. The Australian Government is creating 100 new Fellowships in targeted areas such as nanotechnology. Full details of this scheme are due to be released in September 2009.

  • Australian Research Council Advanced Research Fellowships are 5 year fully funded fellowships for researchers with a few years of postdoctoral experience. Applications for these are due in March each year, with the position beginning the following calendar year.

  • Australian Research Council Future Fellowships are for mid-career researchers, providing 4-6 year positions with guaranteed research support. The Australian government is creating 1,000 of these new Fellowships over a 5 year period. Applications are due in Sept/Oct each year, although expressions of interest are due several months beforehand.

Some researchers visit us for scientific collaborations. There are exchange agreements between the Australian Academy of Science and similar bodies in several other countries. Funding from such agreements is possible, but far from certain, and takes time to organise.
