It is also open to full-time PhD students who have successfully completed the equivalent of two years of full-time study.  
  • Early Career Researcher Industry Fellowships up to $7,500 for PhD-qualified researchers employed in industry, whose employer is a Centre Participant , and the applicant’s current role is actively involved in research or research translation in a field closely linked to the Centre’s research themes and research priorities.

The next Fellowship round will open 2 September and close 31 October 2024.

Fellowship holders benefit from a range of additional opportunities, including networking opportunities, mentoring, promotion of research and connection into the Centre’s knowledge network.
