Australian Laureate Fellows

The Australian Laureate Fellowships scheme supports excellence in research by attracting world-class researchers and research leaders to key positions, and creating new rewards and incentives for the application of their talents in Australia. They are open to applications from outstanding researchers of international repute.

ARC Super Science Fellows

The Super Science Fellowships are part of the Australian Government’s new $1.1 billion Super Science Initiative, which is helping to build a stronger higher education and innovation system for the 21st century. The aim of the Super Science Fellowships is to attract and retain outstanding early-career researchers in three key areas: space and astronomy; marine and climate; and future industries.
