Dear All,

The following item may be of interest:

The *Macquarie University Research Fellowship* (*MQRF*) Scheme is about to
open for formal Expressions of Interest.

Macquarie University will offer at least 6 full-time Research Fellowship
positions commencing in 2016. Fellowships will be awarded on a
competitive basis and will be fixed-term for three years. Applicants must
have been awarded their PhD on or after 1st March 2012, or submit their
thesis by 20th August 2015 (or make a convincing case for early career
researcher status).

The Philosophy Department has an excellent record of success in obtaining
funding from this scheme, as can be seen from the list of current and past
post-docs in the Department viewable at

If you have an interest in applying for a Fellowship in the 2015 round,
please send:

1. Your current CV with list of publications, as an email attachment with
your surname in the file name.
2. Provisional project title and one page (300-400 word) project
description, which also highlights areas of potential connection with
Departmental research strengths. Please also include this text as an
attachment with your surname in the file name.

to Dr Robert Sinnerbrink (robert.sinnerbrink at mq.edu.au) by *May 20th, 2015*.

It is recommended that you approach the Department and potential sponsors
well in advance of this deadline if you are interested in submitting an
Expression of Interest. Please note that it is important to highlight the
manner in which the proposed project will fit with the research interests
and expertise of potential sponsors. There must be a good fit between the
applicant’s and the sponsor’s areas of research specialisation.

For this reason, potential applicants are strongly advised to review the
research profiles of potential sponsors from within the Philosophy
Department. These can be viewed via the Department staff list at:


If the Department is able to sponsor your application, you will be notified
by *May 22nd, 2015*. Sponsored applicants will then be invited to work with
their sponsors to develop their Expressions of Interest which must be
submitted in their final form by *June 10th,* *2015*.

The Philosophy Department also hosts the Macquarie University Research
Centre for Agency, Values and Ethics (CAVE). Applicants are encouraged to
review the research projects currently supported by CAVE. The CAVE website
can be accessed at: http://www.cave.mq.edu.au/home/. However, in the first
instance it is not necessary to have a detailed project proposal: the
details will be worked out together with your sponsor if an EOI goes ahead.

Full details of the MQRF2016 scheme, together with Expression of Interest
forms, will be released on Wednesday *6th May* 2015. You will be able to
