TWD : News: New post-docs and PhD students opportunities

Title

New post-docs and PhD students opportunities

​From: Phil Taylor<mailto:phil.taylor@mq.edu.au>

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 appointments.

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).

Anyone interested in applying for an Endeavour Research Fellowship or PhD Scholarship should be encouraged to contact me directly.

All the best,
