From: Phil Taylor<mailto:email@example.com>
I'm on the look-out for new post-docs and PhD students to join my group
for fruit fly research in 2015. As ever, general areas I'm interested
in recruiting include mating performance, post-copulatory interactions,
sexual and reproductive development, pre-release supplements and
treatments, adult and larval nutrition, and environmental tolerance.
Anyone interested is of course welcome to come with their own ideas and
topics - we have facilities to support almost anything imaginable.
While there are other opportunities as well, at this time I am seeking
applicants for the Endeavour scheme that is funded by the Australian
government. Applications for Endeavour Research Fellowships and
Postgraduate Scholarships close on 30 June.
Endeavour Fellowships provide an opportunity to spend 6 months working
with my group in Australia. These fellowships are open to citizens of
many countries who are currently enrolled in postgraduate studies or
have recently completed their PhD. Current award conditions include
AU$4,500 travel allowance, AU$4,000 establishment allowance, AU$2,500
per month salary for up to 6 months (untaxed), as well as health
insurance for the full period of the Fellowship and travel insurance for
travel to and from Australia. While not particularly long, these
fellowships tend to be a great 'stepping stone' to other opportunities
here and elsewhere. Most Endeavour Fellows to have joined my lab have
then also secured additional funding from other sources to extend their
Endeavour Postgraduate Awards offer 4-year PhD scholarships that include
a very good untaxed stipend of AU$2,500 per month (AU$30,000 pa),
AU$4,500 travel allowance, AU$4,000 establishment allowance as well as
health insurance for the full period of study and travel insurance for
travel to and from Australia. Endeavour also offer scholarships for
Masters degrees. To apply for Endeavour PhD or Masters scholarships, an
offer of candidature from the host university is required and that can
take a while to arrange. Interested students should contact me before
the end of March (preferably sooner).
