Eligibility for Fellowship Scheme 2019

1.     All applicants must have a PhD award dated no earlier than 1 January 2013 and no later than 19 August 2018. PhD award/conferred date is defined as the date on the testamur.
2.     All applicants must obtain the endorsement of a proposed University of Sydney supervisor before applying.
3.     Strong preference will be given to applicants seeking to join the University from another organisation in Australia or from overseas. However, applicants currently employed at the University of Sydney or other affiliated institutions (including medical research institutes) who commenced such employment after 1 July 2017 are eligible to apply.
4.     Applicants with a PhD awarded by the University of Sydney may only apply if they have held a paid position with another organisation subsequent to the award of their PhD.

Career interruption

Candidates awarded their PhD after 1 January 2010 who have had a period of significant career interruption (3 months or more is considered significant in this context) will have their eligibility considered.

Assessment Criteria

There are two essential criteria.

1.     Research excellence will be a primary criterion, both in terms of the project quality, innovation and feasibility and the track-record and potential of the researcher (relative to opportunity).
2.     The alignment of the proposed research (by the applicant) with the University’s agenda of excellence and multidisciplinary research (both with the initiatives listed above and more broadly).
