Dear all
Can you please circulate this opportunity through your networks (aimed at  current PhDs who are intending to submit and be examined by 31 December 2018)? Past PhD graduates (they must have completed their PhD after 1 January 2016) can also apply. See below for more information:
The Forrest Research Foundation has been established with a gift of AU$130 million to support PhD scholars and post-doctoral fellows at any of the five universities in Western Australia. Applications for the second round of post-doctoral fellowships opened on 19 March and close on 18 May 2018. Three fellows were appointed in the first round, and it is anticipated that a similar number will be appointed in the second round.
The fellowships are open to outstanding candidates from any discipline and any nationality; they must have completed their PhD after 1 January 2016, or be expecting to submit and be examined by 31 December 2018. The fellowships offer a salary, accommodation and travel expenses package valued at over AU$115,000 per annum for three years.
The 2017 Annual Report of the Forrest Research Foundation provides more details about the purposes and operation of the Foundation, and the backgrounds and research interests of the inaugural post-doctoral fellows and PhD scholars.
