Fellowship Opportunity in Australia

Early Career Researcher Fellowships (DECRA), School of Social Sciences, University of Adelaide

Deadline: December 12, 2016

The Australian Research Council (ARC) annually awards three-year Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards (DECRAs) to create opportunities for early career researchers to develop their research careers. The Hugo Centre is a global research hub for interdisciplinary research on human migration, population-environment dynamics, and geospatial analysis. The Centre works closely with key policy makers and practitioners and leading academic centres globally, and has ongoing projects at the cutting edge of research on labour migration, diasporas, transnationalism, ageing and related service provision, demographic change, and spatial analysis of social disadvantage.

The desired successful early career researchers would have expertise that aligns with these areas, and will work with Centre team members who lead a number of externally funded research projects in the above areas. To be eligible for a DECRA a candidate must at the closing time of submission of proposals have been awarded a PhD on or after 1 March 2012 (or longer if combined with periods of significant career interruption). See ARC Funding Rules and FAQs for detailed information. The ARC DECRA program is highly competitive and support from our institution provides no guarantee of application success. The University is under no obligation under this initiative to employ an individual if they are not successful in their application for a DECRA.
