Announcing the 2018 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research Fellowship Scheme

Call for applications
Due Date: 
20 Nov 2017

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that applications for the 2018 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research Fellowship Scheme are now open.

The scheme enables one fellowship to be awarded annually to an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander researcher to undertake full-time research in a field that will broadly align with one of Swinburne’s five Research Institutes.

Swinburne is strongly committed to our Elevate Reconciliation Action Plan and is seeking to increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academics at the university.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research Fellowship Scheme aims to:

  • attract and retain high calibre and talented Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander early career researchers in research priority areas for the university
  • increase the profile and number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander researchers at the university
  • strengthen the university’s existing areas of research expertise by awarding fellowships to applicants whose profiles will complement the work of the institutes
  • support fellows to develop their demonstrated research potential, track record and capacity to successfully apply for external funding
  • strengthen the university’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research profile and capacity.

Successful applicants will be supported by a fellowship grant as well as through mentorship, research training and personal career development.

You can find out more about this fellowship and apply by visiting the Swinburne jobs webpage.

For further information contact Professor Andrew Gunstone.

We look forward to announcing the successful fellow to you in due time.
