TEACHING FELLOWSHIPS


2017 TEACHING FELLOWSHIP APPLICATION ROUND NOW OPEN

Applications for 2017 are due by close of business, Tuesday 4 October 2016.

Applicant Information

Application form

Teaching Fellowships provide postdoctoral students with the opportunity to undertake face-to-face teaching whilst gaining other sorts of valuable academic experience. Closely integrated with the School of Economics program, and supervised by senior academic staff, the Fellowships are held for a period of one year.

Students may hold only one Teaching Fellowship during their candidature; the remuneration and the variety of experiences offered make them an attractive scheme for postdoctoral candidates.

Teaching Fellowships are awarded on a merit-basis; to be considered eligible candidates must indicate their competitiveness, the ability of the School to provide enhanced teaching opportunities, and the availability of appropriate supervision and mentoring. Candidates should discuss their intention to apply with their Supervisor.


GRANTS IN AID (GIA)

Grants-in-aid are available to provide students with travel grants to support short-term periods of research overseas.

Please note: applications cannot be submitted solely for the purpose of attending a conference. For funding for postgraduate research students presenting at a conference, see the PRSS information instead.

Most grants are open only to students enrolled in a postgraduate research degree.

Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of Australia, except in the case of the Hellenic Club Research Scholarship in Classical Archaeology.
