UNE Postdoctoral Research Fellowships Scheme

UNE is committed to strongly increasing the scale and capability of its research.  Priority one of the UNE Strategic Plan 2016-2020 sets out our aim to achieve international distinction in our chosen fields of research, which will positively impact and strengthen our communities.

The University of New England Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Scheme (UNE-PDF) aims to support early career researchers who have an outstanding track record relative to opportunity, and commensurate with expectations for nationally competitive early career fellowships. Fellowships are offered on a three-year fixed term full-time basis and Fellows must be based at the University for the duration of the Fellowship.

The UNE Postdoctoral Research Fellowship applicant must gain support for the application from a prospective senior academic supervisor at UNE who will act as research mentor and line manager during the Fellowship. All Nominations must be submitted by the UNE nominating supervisor. Direct applications from candidates will not be accepted.

The 2019 UNE-PDF Fellowship Scheme is a targeted round with the selection criteria reflecting two priorities; firstly, for nominees working alongside UNE ARC Discovery (DP19) Chief Investigators, and secondly, nominees who will strengthen research teams at UNE. This targeted call for Postdoctoral Fellows is a request for applications to address a specific UNE strategy aiming to:

  • stimulate the development of competitive ARC Discovery submissions, and
  • advance a strong research team to an outstanding research team.
