Macquarie University Research Fellowship (MQRF) Scheme: Call for Intentions to Apply

Macquarie University (Sydney, Australia) will offer up to 10 full-time Research Fellowship positions commencing in 2024. Fellowships will be awarded on a competitive basis and will be fixed-term for three years. Applicants must have been awarded their PhD on or after 1 March 2020 or submit their thesis on or before 16 August 2023 (or make a convincing case for early career researcher status).

MQRF24 applicants must either reside in Australia and have appropriate work rights (either be an Australian Permanent Resident or Citizen) OR if they are applying from overseas, they must have appropriate work rights for Australia already (returning Australian Permanent Resident/Citizen) and be able to get themselves back to Australia to commence no later than 30 June 2024 or they forfeit their MQRF.

If you have an interest in applying for a Fellowship in the 2024 round through the Macquarie School of Social Sciences in the disciplines of Anthropology, Geography and Planning, Politics and International Relations or Sociology, please send: 

  1. Provisional project title and a brief (400-word) project description
  2. Name of potential Sponsor (there is no need to contact them at this stage)
  3. Your PhD conferral date (or thesis submission date if the PhD is not yet awarded).
  4. A copy of your CV as an attachment including a list of publications. Publications should be listed under the headings: books, book chapters, peer-reviewed journal articles and other. Your CV should also briefly detail any career interruptions since the award of your PhD.
  5. A copy of your Australian residency document – passport or visa.
