The J.N.

Eligible candidates must have an agreement with an academic supervisor and the Head of an appropriate School or Department to host the research project.

You will conduct independent research on a nominated research project topic that could lead to the publication of research outcomes in journals, presentations at conferences and other measures of peer recognition, for example, awards, research grants and fellowships. The research project may be:

  • Pure research (experimental or theoretical work undertaken to acquire new knowledge without looking for long-term benefits other than the advancement of knowledge); or
  • Applied research (original work undertaken primarily to acquire new knowledge with a specific application in view

A maintenance budget of $15,000 to be spent during prior to the conclusion of the Fellowship will be made available to support the successful fellow's research program. For further information see: http://www.unimelb.edu.au/unisec/utr/pdf/utr7041.pdf
