The University of Sydney has recently advertised its Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Scheme for 2005. In this round, up to ten new fellowships will be offered, each of which will allow its recipient to engage in full-time research for a period of up to three years. Applicants must hold a PhD, which must be dated no earlier than 1 December 1999. Applicants seeking to join the university from another institution in Australia or from overseas are particularly encouraged to apply. Fellowship recipients do not need to be Australian citizens or permanent residents.

The Unit for History and Philosophy of Science welcomes inquiries from individuals who are interested in applying for these postdoctoral positions. Please consult our web-page to see if there is a match between your area of specialisation and those of our staff. Initial inquiries should be directed to Rachel Ankeny ([email protected]).

Guidelines, application form and other associated material for these Fellowships are available from the University Research Office, at http://www.usyd.edu.au/su/reschols/forms/forms.htm” target=”_new”>http://www.usyd.edu.au/su/reschols/forms/forms.htm>http://www.usyd.edu.au/su/reschols/forms/forms.htm (scroll down to: The University of Sydney Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Scheme 2005).
