ARC Discovery - Early Career Researcher Awards Scheme 2011

14 December 2010

You will very likely be aware of the new ARC Scheme aimed specifically at funding Early Career Researchers. This scheme will be run for the first time in 2011 for funding commencing in 2012.

For the purposes of this scheme we expect you will be considered an Early Career Researcher if you are 0 - 5 years post-PhD award.

The ARC has not yet finalised its funding rules for this scheme, however we expect it will attract a large number of applications from ECRs across the sector. As we are keen to ensure that as many ECRs from Sydney as possible are able to make competitive applications, we would appreciate your advice on whether you intend to apply so that we can plan how best to provide you with assistance in writing your application.

In order to do this we would ask that you let Jennifer Turner know by 14 January 2011 that you are considering making an application.
