Elizabeth & Vernon Puzey Fellow
Faculty of Science
Salary: $66,809* - $90,657 p.a. (*PhD Entry Level $84,458 p.a.)
The Elizabeth & Vernon Puzey Fellowship has been established to attract outstanding early career doctoral graduates to the University of Melbourne in areas of research priority for the University and the Faculty of Science. In particular, we seek to recruit new researchers to the Faculty who have the potential to build and lead collaborative research activities both within and across faculties. The University offers a world-class and robust research environment that is internationally engaged and recognised, community focused, and with many outstanding areas of research strength.
You will conduct independent research on your nominated research project topic, leading to the publication of research outcomes in journals, presentations at conferences and other measures of peer recognition e.g. awards, research grants, fellowships. You will be located in one of the Schools of the Faculty of Science and will be expected to engage with other academics and contribute more broadly to the core activities of the School. The Fellowship will be for a maximum of two years commencing 1 January 2017, but the start date may be deferred up to 30 June 2017. A once-off payment of $10,000 will be made available to support the successful fellow's research program.
The Faculty of Science is seeking to increase the representation of women in the academic workforce across science disciplines, and therefore strongly encourages applications from female candidates.
