Deadline: Group of Eight (Go8) European Fellowships 2010


The Group of Eight (Go8) has opened applications for its 2010 European Fellowships. As a member of this scheme, The University of Queensland is offering one Fellowship for 2010 to an early career researcher from Europe.

The Fellowships are open to citizens of Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Croatia. The purpose of the scheme is to facilitate further research collaboration between Australia and Europe with the intention that Fellows will continue to collaborate with their Australian research partners when they return to their home institutions.

The fellowship, with a total value of AUD$20,000, is to support travel and living costs to allow the Fellow to work at a Go8 university for a period of not less than 16 weeks, and up to a maximum of 6 months.

* $2,000 will be provided to the host School/Faculty/Department to meet incidental expenses; and
* $18,000 will be provided directly to the fellow for travel, including travel within Australia, and living expenses.

It is expected that the Fellow will continue to receive a salary from their employer in their home country.


To be eligible, applicants must:

* have completed a PhD less than five years prior to the application closing date;
* be under 40 years of age at the application closing date;
* be a citizen of one of the designated countries listed above;
* reside in one of the designated countries listed above (it need not be the same country as their citizenship);
* have been employed (minimum half-time appointment) for at least six months prior to the application closing date by a university or research organisation (public or private) in one of the designated countries;
* have sufficient competency in English to be able to adequately communicate with researchers in the host university; and
* be eligible to obtain an Australian Visiting Academic Visa (subclass 419) or equivalent Australian visa.

Applications must be submitted using the Application Pack available from the Go8 website. Applicants must only submit one application (ie. an application to one Go8 university) per year.
