13 outstanding early career researchers have benefited from the latest round of Sydney’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowships.

These prestigious Fellowships are awarded to researchers to undertake research in Faculties across the University.

An initiative of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), the Postdoctoral Research Fellowship scheme awards Fellows a starting salary of $84,000 a year, plus a research support grant of $25,000.

“These Fellowships continue to attract eager interest from strong candidates and I am happy to be able to provide this support to researchers in the early stages of their career,” said Professor Jill Trewhella, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research).

“It is particularly pleasing to again see the breadth of research represented by the recipients, particularly those doing research in creative fields, with two Fellowships destined for the Sydney College of the Arts.”

The Scheme requires recipients to find and nominate a mentor who will support not only their nomination, but their ongoing work.

“We are committed to not only providing funding but ensuring researchers are supported by their more experienced colleagues, support that is invaluable” said Professor Trewhella.
