Post-doctoral Fellowship at Flinders University, Australia
Adelaide, South Australia, Australia
The Flinders University Vice Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Scheme is an initiative to build the University’s research and to support outstanding early career researchers seeking to commence an academic/research career.
The Scheme provides appointments of 3 years full-time research, but 4-year appointments will be considered for highly ranked candidates who participate in a teaching component.
Up to 4 Research Fellowships will be supported in 2012 under this Scheme at Academic Levels A and/or B. A start-up grant, to be negotiated, may be provided to successful applicants. This will be a highly competitive scheme and applicants are expected to have a strong track record relative to opportunity.
The scheme focuses on outstanding early career researchers who would normally be within 5 working years since completing their Doctoral qualification.
Applications will be assessed on the quality of the proposed research project and its fit with the host unit, track record (relative to opportunity) of the applicant and the research environment in the host unit (Research Institute, Research Centre, School or research group).
It is expected that Fellowships will be aligned with the University’s areas of identified research strength, which include psychology.
Salary (Level A/B): $61 504 to $93 638 pa (full-time) Plus 17% employer superannuation. Applications close: 11 am, Monday, 25 June 2012
