Study, Research, Travel Fellowships – Australia: This prestigious fellowship carries an allowance of £41,564 (plus any cost of living increases). This allowance is subject to United Kingdom tax. The Trustees will also pay direct, economy class return air fares for the appointee, his/her spouse and children up to the age of 18 years. A generous baggage allowance is also provided.
Applicants should have graduated from one of the universities listed below and should either hold a medical qualification or have appropriate research experience. There is no limit as to age or status.
The fellowship is tenable for two years in the first instance, with the possibility of an extension for a third year. Fellows are expected to return to Australia at the end of the fellowship to continue to do work of a similar nature.
The earliest possible start date for this fellowship is 1 October or, subject to consultation with the University’s Medical Sciences Office and the department concerned, from such other later date as may be agreed.
Further information, including details of the research interests of those departments in which the fellowship may be held may be obtained from the Oxford University Medical Sciences Division website.
