The Faculty of Science

Salary: $95,434 – $113,323 p.a. plus 9.5% superannuation

The Centenary Research Fellowship was established to celebrate the centenary of the Faculty of Science in 2003. We seek to recruit an outstanding early career researcher who has the potential to build and lead collaborative research activities, preferably with external organisations including industry and government departments. 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, presentations at conferences, external research collaborations and other measures of research impact. 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 and Faculty. The Fellowship will be for a maximum of three years commencing 1 January 2017, but the start date may be deferred up to 30 June 2017. A grant of $15,000 per annum will be made available to support the successful fellow's research program.

The University of Melbourne is seeking to increase the representation of women in the academic workforce across science disciplines, and therefore strongly encourages applications from female candidates, in line with the special measure provided for under section 12 of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (VIC).
