Dear colleagues,

Following a successful call in September 2022 for the second round of the ACAMAR Visiting Fellowship, ACAMAR is pleased to announce that a further two positions are now available.  The Visiting Fellowship enables distinguished Chinese researchers to make extended visits to Australia to enhance collaborations on areas of common interest within astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology.  The successful applicants will have the opportunity to visit Australia for up to 3 months and are encouraged to visit multiple institutions. Travel and living allowances will be provided.

The general aims of the ACAMAR Visiting Fellowship are:

  *   To enhance scientific collaborations in astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology between Australia and China.
  *   To maximise the scientific return on investment in astronomy infrastructure.
  *   To explore opportunities for future projects and grant collaborations.

Please note:

  *   This program has a focus on the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) and it is expected that at least two third of the funds will be allocated to projects associated with the SKA and radio astronomy in Western Australia.
  *   Co-investment from the host institution will be highly valued.
  *   Applicants are responsible for securing the approval of their home institution/organisation to undertake the ACAMAR Visiting Fellowship, where required. This includes securing a visa to visit Australia or China and authorisation to conduct collaborative research.

You can read more about the successful applicants from the first round here<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/iW3ZC4QOPEiJXVk8PuOZf1X?domain=acamar.org.au>.

The closing date for applications is 17 March 2023.  Please see the attached application pack for further details.
