Mid-Career Research Fellowships in Biological Sciences (Australia)

Call for Expressions of Interest: Mid-Career Research Fellowships in Biological Sciences at
the University of Queensland
The School of Biological Sciences at The University of Queensland is seeking expressions of interest from applicants interested in applying for the Australian Research Council Future Fellowship scheme. These government fellowships offer 4-years of salary and research funds to outstanding Australian and non-Australian mid-career researchers (details on the scheme can be found at: http://www.arc.gov.au/future-fellowships). UQ's School of
Biological Sciences is seeking to support a small number of outstanding candidates in the anticipated 2018 round of this scheme. We will consider any applicants whose research
compliments our School's existing research strengths but are particularly interested in candidates with strong quantitative skills. For selected candidates, we will be offering negotiated setup packages to help successful fellows establish their own research group as well as negotiated extensions of employment as teaching and research academics in the School following the completion of awarded fellowships.
The School of Biological Sciences (http://www.biology.uq.edu.au/) at The University of Queensland is internationally recognised, and is one of the largest and most productive Biology departments in Australia, with a thriving graduate student and postdoctoral
community. The School has strengths in ecology, evolution, genetics, and conservation biology.
Research within the School is diverse, including both empirical and theoretical approaches in taxa ranging across microbes, animals and plants, in a range of marine, freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems. The School offers a highly collaborative environment, including a
variety of non-academic and industry partnerships, and collaborations across institutions nationally and internationally.
If interested please submit a CV and a brief expression of interest (no more than 1 page) outlining how your research programme will complement research within the School, and meets the Future Fellowship scheme objectives of being innovative, internationally
competitive research, building collaborations across industry or research, and generating economic, environmental, social and/or cultural benefits for Australia.
Please direct questions and submit expressions to Dr Katrina McQuigan by 30th June. K.mcguigan1@uq.edu.au
