University of Sydney Fellowships

The University of Sydney Fellowships aim to attract outstanding early career researchers to the University of Sydney to contribute to and enhance the research strengths and culture of the university.

Why join us?
Applications are welcome and encouraged from any discipline, faculty or research area. A particular objective of the 2017 round, however, is to attract talented recent doctoral graduates who can contribute to our whole-of-university multidisciplinary initiatives, broadly construed.

  • The Charles Perkins Centre
  • The Brain and Mind Centre
  • The Australian Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology
  • The China Studies Centre
  • The Sydney Southeast Asia Centre
  • The Cancer Research Network
  • The Sydney Environment Institute
  • The Marie Bashir Institute for Infectious Diseases and Biosafety
  • The Sydney Centre for Translational Data Science
