Dear Colleagues,

Please bring this fellowship opportunity to the attention of suitable 
early-career researchers.

Best regards,

-- Daniel Zucker


The Research Centre for Astronomy, Astrophysics and Astrophotonics 
(MQAAAstro) at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia invites highly 
qualified candidates to apply for a three year Macquarie University 
Research Fellowship.

The 12 faculty work with their groups in the areas of planet and star 
formation, stellar and binary evolution, Galactic archaeology, the 
Galactic interstellar medium, galaxy formation and evolution, cosmology, 
and astronomical instrumentation. The group enjoys strong links to the 
Australian Astronomical Observatory and the CSIRO Astrophysics and Space 
Science group, both located nearby.

Applicants are eligible only if their PhD was awarded after 
approximately March 2015, or will be submitted by the end of August 
2018, although significant career interruptions will be taken into 
account in determining eligibility. The fellowship comes with up to 
AUD$50,000 of travel and equipment money over the three years. Salaries 
are expected to start at AUD$88,420 (Level A6). During their 
fellowships, researchers are encouraged to apply for additional external 
and internal funding.

Macquarie University is set in an appealing parklike campus, equipped 
with its own train station, approximately 30 minutes' train ride to the 
Sydney CBD.

Expressions of interest should be sent to Anne-­Laurence Bibost 
(a.bibost at mq.edu.au <mailto:a.bibost at mq.edu.au>) by 17 May 2018, 
including a CV and a brief (up to one page) research interest statement, 
possibly (but not necessarily) linking to the interests of academic 
staff. Following successful pre­-selection, candidates will be mentored 
on how to apply for the application first round, which has a deadline at 
the end of May 2018. If selected, the deadline for a full proposal will 
be in late August 2018, with outcomes to be announced by mid-­November.
