ARC Australian Laureate Fellowships

ARC Australian Laureate Fellowships

Status Closed
Aim The objectives of the Australian Laureate Fellowship scheme are to:
  • attract and retain outstanding researchers and research leaders of international reputation;
  • support ground-breaking, internationally competitive research;
  • provide an excellent research training environment and exemplary mentorship to nurture early-career researchers;
  • forge strong links among researchers, the international research community and/or industry;
  • expand Australia’s knowledge base and research capability;
  • enhance the scale and focus of research in the Australian Government's Science and Research Priorities.
Funding

The Administering Organisation must provide a salary of a Level E professorial appointment (or equivalent) for the Australian Laureate Fellow, with the ARC providing the salary supplement.

The level of salary supplement that will be provided by the ARC for an Australian Laureate Fellow is AU$163,074 per annum, including 30 per cent on-costs.

In addition to the salary supplement and salary-related (on-cost) support, the ARC may provide:
(a) funding for two postdoctoral research associates (PDRAs) for five years each;
(b) two postgraduate researchers (PGRs) for four years each; and
(c) project funding of up to A$300,000 per annum for up to five years.
