The following item may be of interest. Please note the updated Departmental
deadline and further details concerning the EOI submission process.
The *Macquarie University Research Fellowship* (*MQRF*) Scheme is now open
for formal Expressions of Interest (EOI).
Macquarie University will offer up to ten 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
19th August 2015 (or make a convincing case for early career researcher
status). Any intending applicants for this scheme must discuss their
Expression of Interest with their Fellowship Sponsor and work closely with
them during its development.
For full details please read the EOI Funding Rules 2016 and the EOI
Application Form which are available on the Research Office website (
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,
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 18th**,
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:
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.
If the Department is able to sponsor your application, you will be notified
before *Monday, May 18*. Approved and sponsored applicants will then be
asked to email the Faculty of Arts Research Office expressing their
intention to submit and EOI including details of the project and their
Approved applicants will then be invited to work with their sponsors to
develop their Expressions of Interest which must be submitted in by *5pm
Wednesday,* *May 27th,* *2015*. This deadline is set to ensure time to
incorporate feedback from compliance checks before submitting the final
Expression of Interest to the Research Office (email:
research.preaward at mq.edu.au) by 5 pm on *Wednesday, 10th June 2015*.
