Curtin Research Fellowships
Applications have now closed. Results are expected to be announced in late October - early November 2012
The Curtin Research Fellowship scheme aims to attract high quality post doctoral researchers with excellent potential for providing future academic and research leadership at the University. It is highly competitive and continues to be amongst the most prestigious fellowship schemes in Australia.
The call for applications in 2012, for commencement in 2013, refers to a targeted research-only fellowship with two streams:
- Early Career Researcher Fellowship: Suitably qualified applicants who received their PhD within the last five years.
- Senior Research Fellowship: Suitably qualified applicants with more than five years post-doctoral experience.
All applications must be completed and submitted using the online application system (available from 6th July 2012).
Successful applicants will be appointed as a staff member within the recruiting area sponsoring the fellowship application. It is therefore critical that the potential fellow liaise directly with the appropriate head of recruiting area prior to submitting an application to ensure that the proposed project and activities align with the area's strategic plan. Applications without the signature of the appropriate head of recruiting area to confirm support will not be considered.
The fellowships are not restricted to Australian citizens.
Applicants must have completed a research doctoral degree.
Enquiries should be directed to Ms Anne Wong on +61 8 9266 3286 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

- “Applied geology gets steamed up” - Professor Steve Reddy and Dr Katy Evans
Geothermal power – exploiting heat stored in the earth – is proving to be an efficient, sustainable energy source for an increasing number of population centres worldwide. Locally, Curtin’s Institute for Geoscience Research is helping determine the capability for hot fluids from the Perth Basin to be extracted for geothermal power.

- “Diversity on the board” - Dr Jeremy Galbreath
The ratio of men to women at board director level is about 10:1 for firms listed in the ASX200. Many firms could be strategically addressing the imbalance now that research from Curtin’s Graduate School of Business has shown they may be better equipped to address sustainability if women serve on the board.
