Hello All,

I'm writing to let you know about the Swinburne Visiting Research Fellowship. This program offers women and gender diverse people the opportunity to visit CAS and interact with researchers and graduate students at Swinburne.

More information about the fellowship and application can be found here: https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/9mcbCROND2uGBlQzPI9QDFy?domain=jobregister.aas.org

Visiting Scholar Objectives

  *   Promote collaborative ties between Swinburne astronomers and a network of national and international researchers
  *   Enable interaction of students with researchers in their discipline
  *   Develop career opportunities for early & mid-career researchers
  *   Further improve the research environment in CAS
  *   Foster mentoring relationships


The Swinburne Visiting Fellow program is open to women and nonbinary researchers at least 4 years from the award of their PhD, and fewer than 15 years, at the time of undertaking the visit. Note that the time since PhD can be extended to account for any career interruptions. In this event, please include an explanatory statement. The research must overlap with the interests of at least one faculty member of CAS, whom you should identify in the application.


Funding is up to $12k AUD, which is sufficient to cover typical international airfare and accommodation for the duration of the fellowship. Additional funding for childcare may be available on a needs basis, subject to funding availability.

The visit can take place in either 2023 or 2024, however tickets and accommodation must be paid for by end-of-year 2023.

Application Materials

Please submit a CV and a single PDF with the following materials to the email address dfisher at swin.edu.au<mailto:dfisher at swin.edu.au>

The proposal should be roughly 2 pages long (not more than three), discussing the proposed dates of visit, 2 presentations (discussed above) and/or any mentoring activities, research activities (identifying the CAS faculty member involved).

The deadline for application is 31 August.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
