AINSE Research Fellowships 2010 Australia

AINSE Research Fellowships are offered at academic level B for outstanding and enthusiastic scientists with 3 – 8 years postdoctoral experience to undertake research in areas of science and technology requiring use of the research facilities at ANSTO. Fellows will be expected to build a research group in one of the AINSE member universities and be attached to ANSTO for experiments on the state of the art facilities on the OPAL research reactor or other facilities at ANSTO.

AINSE offers fellowships for exceptional researchers in the following research areas:
1. neutron scattering;
2. biological problems using radionuclide techniques;
3. high-resolution climate records using nuclear techniques; and
4. multi-scale materials modelling or structural materials for extreme environments

We emphasise that applications for Research Fellowships will also be considered where the research aligns with the broad spectrum of research foci supported by AINSE or which require use of OPAL neutron scattering facilities or other ANSTO facilities and which align with the joint research interests of ANSTO and AINSE member universities.

Research support of up to $40,000 will be provided in the first year and support of up to $40,000, $20,000, $20,000 and $15,000 will be provided in years 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively. It is expected that the AINSE Fellow’s research will move progressively towards self-funding during the initial 3-year appointment period through success in externally funded grant applications. Materials and laboratory necessities, $5,000 pa, will also be provided.
These funds will be transferred to the
university and may be spent at the Fellow’s discretion.
Relocation expenses up to $5000 will be met by AINSE for the Fellow and his/her dependant(s).
