Internal Research Fellowships Scheme

The University of Adelaide Research Fellowships Scheme has been established to retain, attract and support early-career and mid-career researchers of outstanding research calibre and potential.

Please note: this scheme is currently under review.

Eligibility

The current fellowship selection round supports fellowships for a period of up to 12 months. They will provide full salary plus on-costs, together with additional research support packages of up to $10,000 per year.

Applications from internal candidates will be accepted providing they have no other form of future support. Current University of Adelaide Research Fellows are eligible to apply.

Applications from outstanding external candidates will also be accepted but the applicant must be nominated by a University of Adelaide host School to be eligible for consideration.

  • External candidates

      1. Contact the relevant School at the University of Adelaide to discuss a proposed application.
      2. Read the guidelines in conjunction with step 3.
      3. Draft your application in a Word template for external applicants (NOT for uploading).
      4. Prepare your curriculum vitae to address the CV requirements.
      5. Forward the Word template of your application and all supporting documents to the University of Adelaide ‘supervisor’ who has agreed to submit the application on your behalf.

      External fellowship applicants must also provide:

      • Evidence of the award of the PhD.
      • Evidence that the applicant has certified submission of the application (copy of email confirming this will suffice).

      Please note: External candidates must be nominated by a University of Adelaide host School to be eligible for consideration. External fellowship candidates will not be able to access the ResearchMaster eForm. Applications must therefore be submitted on behalf of the external candidate by a University of Adelaide ‘supervisor’ (e.g. an academic member from the same School).
