Dear all

Curtin University of Technology is currently advertising Research Fellowships to commence sometime in 2010. Across the whole university, there are 5 Early-Career fellowships (5 years or less from PhD); and 8 Senior Research Fellowships. These fellowships have attractive salaries and conditions and run for 4-5 years. They are research focused and involve no or limited teaching.

The Department of Internet Studies is very interested in supporting strong applications from suitable candidates for these positions. Applicants will need to have very good records of publications and (especially for Senior positions) grant success. Applicants will need to propose a project that fits with the theme of Communication and Creativity (which can be broadly interpreted) and which focuses at least in part on the Internet or related network media technologies.

The Department currently has 5 academic staff, all of whom are research active, including a Senior Research Fellow; it has a strong PhD program; and is located in a successful school with a growing capacity to sustain longer term employment. Staff in other areas of the school and the Faculty of Humanities to which it belongs ensure a rich research environment and opportunities for interdisciplinary partnerships.

For more information on fellowships: http://research.curtin.edu.au/guides/fellowships.cfm. The closing date is September 11; you will need to proposal completed before that date for review.

Please contact me immediately if you are interested in applying, since the process will require assistance from me in framing and shaping your project application to suit the particular manner in which Curtin assesses and selects fellows.
