About this 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 eligible research centres/institutes or schools and will contribute to key areas of strength in national and international research.

Postdoctoral Fellows (up to 3 years post-Research Doctorate) will be appointed at RF1 levels.
