The Scientia Fellowship Program, established as a cornerstone of the UNSW 2025 Strategy, aims to attract and retain the highest research performers on a trajectory to being exceptional research leaders and mentors. Fellowship appointments will be made at academic levels A to C in 2017.
UNSW 2025 Strategy has a firm commitment to a just society and aspires to being an international exemplar in equity, diversity and inclusion. In pursuit of this goal, the Scientia Fellowship Program will embed diversity in appointment practices to ensure appropriate gender representation, cultural diversity and disciplinary expertise.
- This scheme is open to internal and external candidates. This is either,
- Internal continuing, fixed term or casual UNSW staff; or
- Not currently in paid employment at UNSW.
- Applicants must hold a PhD at the time of application.
