The Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Coral
Reef Studies is contacting people who might be interested in applying
for an ARC Future Fellowship. The ARC Centre has recruited 38
full-time research fellows in the past 3 years, working in many
fields relevant for coral reefs (e.g. biophysical sciences, climate
change, conservation planning, economics, social science, modelling).
The Centre is a world-leader in coral reef research (see
http://www.coralcoe.org.au/annualreport08.pdf) with nodes at four
Australian Universities. James Cook University and the ARC Centre
will host the 12th International Coral Reef Symposium in Australia in 2012.
The ARC Future Fellowship scheme was launched in 2009. Two hundred
awards are available each year. They are designed to attract
outstanding mid-career researchers (5 to 15 years post-PhD) to
Australia and are open to citizens of all countries. These are
four-year fellowships that provide salaries of up to $140,000/year
Institutions that host Future Fellows negotiate additional support
with applicants, such as salary top-up, research support, and
continuing employment beyond the term of the fellowship.
Another scheme, ARC Discovery Fellowships, supports postdoctoral
fellows within 3 years of their PhD. A third scheme, ARC Laureate
Fellowships supports Professorial Fellows who are rising global
leaders in their field.
If you are interested in joining the ARC Centre of Excellence for
Coral Reef Studies using any of these schemes (which span all career
stages), please contact us for further advice by emailing your CV to
