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 2020 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.
Commencing in this round, the University assessment panel will be advised by the Macquarie University Gender Equity Committee to consider issues of gender equity as part of their decision making, with the expectation that at least 40% of the 10 fellowship recipients who are funded by this scheme will be female, and at least 40% will be male.
If you wish to submit an EoI for a Research Fellowship in 2019 (for commencement in 2020), please email the relevant Faculty Research Office.
The Faculty Research Office will then provide you with details of the faculty process, the faculty deadlines and how to access the EoI form, or will provide other feedback as appropriate. (Note: the relevant Faculty Research Office for you will be the faculty to which belongs the sponsor or host department in which you would propose to undertake the fellowship if successful.)
