Apply Now: 2017 Australia-APEC Women in Research Fellowship

15 February 2017

Women in Research Fellowship

The Australia-APEC Women in Research Fellowship offers up to 10 fellowships per year for female post-doctorate researchers to work in partnership with an Australian education institution to undertake a research project.

This exciting initiative was launched in 2015 to provide mobility to high-achieving female researchers from developing APEC economies to collaborate with other experts in their field and further their research work in Australia.

The Australian Department of Education and Training and the Australian APEC Study Centre welcome applications for research projects varying between 1 and 4 months in duration. A maximum of AUD$23,300 is available for each fellowship.

This exciting opportunity is open to citizens and permanent residents from Chile, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Peru, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

To support upcoming researchers who may have a less extensive publication list compared to established researchers, two places are set aside for early career researchers with less than five years of professional research experience.

Applications for the 2017 round open on 2 February 2017 and will close 1 April 2017 at 5pm (AEST).

More information is available on the Australia-APEC Women in Research Fellowship website.

You are encouraged to circulate this information throughout your networks with a particular emphasis on networks and researchers who may wish to partner with an Australian University for a short term research project.
