2018 Research Fellowships and Senior Research Fellowships

Closing date 4 May 2018

Applications are invited from eligible staff for the new CSU Research Fellowships and Senior Research Fellowships. This is an exciting next step to have the funding and capacity to support these Fellowships. Over a two year period, these Fellowships represent an investment of up to $3M in our research capacity. Full details are available here.

The Research Fellowships and Senior Research Fellowships are intended to boost research capacity within the university by supporting dedicated research time and providing additional research resources for a number of high-performing individuals. The Fellowships are specifically focused on achieving growth and increased performance towards securing the future strength of research at CSU. Built on the Research Narrative, the Fellowships also seek to better enable cross-collaboration and multi-disciplinary projects that lie within the research spheres and/or at the intersections of the research spheres. All Fellowships must be in a research area which aligns to the Research Narrative and can identify strongly with at least one research sphere.

CSU Research Fellowships will provide funding to support an increased research-focussed workload up to a maximum of 60% FTE which is inclusive of the current research-focussed workload of the eligible staff member as at time of application. There will be up to 10 Research Fellowships awarded. There is no fixed allocation of Fellowships per research sphere.

CSU Senior Research Fellowships will provide funding to support an increased research-focussed workload up to a maximum of 100% FTE which is inclusive of the current research-focussed workload of the eligible staff member as at time of application and is inclusive of a 30% FTE commitment to research leadership in the designated research sphere.  There will be up to 2 Senior Research Fellowships per research sphere (up to 6 Fellowships awarded).

All applications and all enquiries should be directed to the innovate@csu.edu.au.
