These Fellowships allow outstanding researchers within 1-6 years of the award of their PhD to undertake research in any School at the University of Sydney. Applicants must have an outstanding track record relative to opportunity in order to be short-listed. Successful applicants are expected to be based full-time at the University for the duration of the Fellowship and must not hold a concurrent paid appointment.

Strong preference will be given to applicants seeking to join the University from another organisation in Australia or from overseas. Applicants must have a PhD award dated no earlier than 1 January 2010 and no later than 1st January 2016. Applicants with a PhD award dated later than 31 December 2014 are extremely unlikely to be competitive and should talk to the host Head of School to assess competitiveness before applying.

Applicants with a PhD awarded by the University of Sydney within the timeframe specified above may apply if they have held a position with another organisation subsequent to the award of their PhD.

Applicants currently employed at the University of Sydney or other affiliated institutions (including but not limited to medical institutes) who commenced such employment after the award of their PhD and on or after 1 July 2014 are eligible to apply.

Starting salary will be A$118,727 (includes $91,520 base salary plus leave loading and up to 17% employer’s contribution to superannuation). The duration of the Fellowship is three years.
