Internal EOI are now open for Westpac Research Fellowship.

Up to two Westpac Research Fellowships will be awarded this year across four university partners. Each university may nominate two candidates to attend the National Assessment Centre in Sydney on 8-9 December. If COVID restrictions do not allow an in-person Assessment Centre, or if deemed to be too great a risk, this will be conducted virtually. 

The focus areas for the Fellowships are;

  • Technology and Innovation
  • Strengthening Australia-Asia ties
  • Enabling positive social change

The fellowship is aimed at 3 – 6yrs post-PhD and note that applications do involve cash co-contribution, so require appropriate HoD endorsement.
