MQ Research Fellowships
|Aim||The purpose of the Macquarie University Research Fellowships (MQRF) Scheme is to support researchers within three years of the award of their PhD who have an outstanding track record (relative to opportunity) and/or who show evidence of excellent research potential. The Scheme provides an incubation period for early career researchers to allow them to increase their competitive edge in securing research funding from non-University sources. In addition, the Scheme aims to enhance the research capabilities of existing and emerging areas of research strength at Macquarie University.|
Up to ten full-time Research Fellowships commencing in 2017 will be awarded on a competitive basis, and will be tenurable for three years. The salary range for the Fellowship will be awarded at step 6, 7 or 8 of Level A of the Academic Salary Scale, plus annual leave loading and 17% employer superannuation. These salary levels will be adjusted in line with movements in the Academic Salary Scale. Salaries above the range A6-A8 cannot be supported by the Fellowship however supplementation by the host Department may be negotiated.
Each Faculty has their own approval and review processes for grants under this scheme. They also have deadlines for submission of draft applications that are earlier than the Research Office deadlines. Please ensure that you contact your Faculty, as early as possible, for information on processes and deadlines. Faculty contacts:
