The upcoming opportunity

The Griffith University Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme is an exciting initiative offering up to thirteen full-time, two year fixed-term research positions to high calibre early-career researchers. Postdoctoral Fellows will be based at one of the University's research centres and will contribute to key areas of strength in national and international research.

Postdoctoral Fellows (up to 3 years post-Research Doctorate) are appointed at RF1 levels. In addition, each year the scheme provides $10,000 for research project costs and $5,000 for collaboration, travel and conference support. In past years, we have offered up to twelve fellowships, including one fellowship designated for an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Researcher.
