The Forrest Research Foundation is offering 3-year post-doctoral fellowships to the world’s truly exceptional early career researchers.

The Fellowships are open to candidates from all countries and all disciplines, and are intended to accelerate opportunity for outstanding researchers. Forrest post-doctoral fellows are more than just intellectually brilliant. They are adventurous, curious, open to ideas from anywhere. They think differently, take risks, forge new pathways and collaborate to improve outcomes for the community and the world.

The Fellowships can be held at any of Western Australia’s five universities – the University of Western Australia, Curtin University, Murdoch University, Edith Cowan University and The University of Notre Dame Australia, in Fremantle.

Applicants will have an outstanding academic profile and will have already made significant personal research contributions to their discipline. They will have gained high-level research experience through studying and researching in a number of different institutions, and their innovative doctoral research will be recognised well beyond their current institutional home.       

The Foundation was established in 2014 following the donation of $130 million by Andrew and Nicola Forrest through the Minderoo Foundation. The donation is used to drive research and innovation capacity in Western Australia by supporting PhD Scholars and Post-doctoral Fellows

Applications are open until 16 May 2021, fellowships commence from January 2022. Applicants must have completed their PhD on or after 1 January 2019, or be due to complete prior to 31 December 2021.
