The key distinctive features of the UNSW Scientia Fellowship Program include a tenure track fellowship with a career pathway commitment that has unprecedented flexibility. UNSW Scientia Fellows will have access to a range of development opportunities relevant to career stage across research, teaching and leadership, with a significant support and collaboration package.
In 2019, up to fifteen of the positions have been reserved for the following priority areas:
- Indigenous research – for passionate and impactful Indigenous researchers who share our vision to make a difference to people’s lives through their knowledge and work
- Interdisciplinary research – for researchers with outstanding track records who can contribute to building on cross-faculty collaboration to create original and innovative interdisciplinary research
- Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) – for leading female researchers in these fields who are passionate about mentoring women in STEMM education and careers in support of UNSW’s commitment to gender equality
Applicants for these priority positions should select the faculty most aligned with their research. This will lead to the application form, where there is an opportunity to identify as an Indigenous researcher, woman in STEMM or interdisciplinary researcher.
