The University of Queensland invites applications for a small number of Postdoctoral Research Fellowships for Women to commence in 2012. The Fellowships are open to women with a PhD or equivalent qualification, whose academic careers have been interrupted, delayed or otherwise constrained by family or other responsibilities. This includes applicants who are precluded from applying for post-doctoral research fellowships in locations elsewhere. Some Fellowships will be available for full-time research over a period of three years while others will be available for half-time research over a period of three years. The research must be conducted at The University of Queensland in any of its disciplines.
The UQ Postdoctoral Research Fellowships for Women support the University’s research strategy to introduce special initiatives to advance women in research. The purpose of the Fellowships is to assist eligible women to re-establish their academic research careers after a career break or interruption.
Applications must be submitted to the proposed host School/Centre/Institute by 22 August 2011.
