Victorian Postdoctoral Research Fellowships
The Victorian Postdoctoral Research Fellowships strengthen Victoria’s innovation capability by funding Victorian companies, research institutes and universities to employ postdoctoral research fellows for three years.
Funding rounds occurred in 2012/13 and 2014/15 - there are currently no plans to call for further applications in the 2016/17.
The Victorian Government awarded up to six fellowships in each round, each worth up to AUD$300,000 over three years to fund a Victorian company, research institute or university to employ a postdoctoral research fellow.
Eligible early career researchers will be completing or will have recently completed a PhD in:
• physical sciences
• life sciences (apart from human health and medicine)
• mathematical sciences
• engineering, and
• information and communications technology.
Fellows spend two years as a guest researcher at an overseas university or research institute gaining international experience and building international networks. Fellows then return to Victoria to work with their Victorian employer for the third year of the fellowship.
