Dear ASA Members,

ICRAR is committed to supporting women in astronomical sciences and technology and we are pleased to invite applications for the " ICRAR Visiting Fellowship for Senior Women in Astronomy".

Please see detailed information and the application form on: https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/Y81gCq7BKYtxw0NLSZsUn0?domain=icrar.org  Please also find attached the fellowship poster.

The main objectives of the fellowship are to:

*         Create opportunities for young researchers at ICRAR, particularly women, to learn career development and work-life balance strategies from potential senior role models.

*         Enable scientific interaction between early career researchers and graduate students, particularly women, with senior academic visitors.

*         Explore opportunities for developing mentoring relations.

*         Enrich the research environment at ICRAR.

*         Create opportunities to foster national and international collaborations.

The Fellow is expected to take part in a range of mutually discussed and agreed activities in line with the objectives of the Fellowship and split the time equally between the two ICRAR nodes (Curtin University and UWA), in order to have the opportunity to participate in the daily life and engage with people at both institutes.

What the Fellowship provides
ICRAR will offer one fellowship per calendar year and will provide:

*         $5,000 per month for two months for living and accommodation expenses,

*         Travel assistance of up to $5,000,

*         Needs-based additional support of up to $4,000 may be provided for childcare or other required support.

*         (Note: Australian tax rules may impact the above amounts).

Applications close on 31 October 2019 and applicants will be informed of the outcome by 30 November 2019. The selected visiting fellow must take up her Fellowship at ICRAR between 1 Feb 2020 and 30 Nov 2020.

Please forward this to suitable candidates and encourage them to apply.

We look forward to receiving applications from interested candidates.
