Early Career Researcher Fellowships (DECRA) in STEM Education at UTS
8 Oct 2015
The Australian Research Council (ARC) annually awards three-year Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards (DECRAs) to create opportunities for early career researchers to develop their research careers.
The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) seeks to support outstanding ECR applicants in the area of STEM Education and will offer ongoing teaching-research positions at the end of the fellowship to successful applicants. The University will help successful non-Australian applicants to organise the appropriate visa.
UTS has a strong track record in STEM Education research, and is committing resources to developing its research strength in this area.
In particular, UTS seeks early career researchers with expertise in science education, maths education, teacher professional learning with technologies, or mlearning in science and maths.
Successful candidates will work with an outstanding research team including Professors Sandy Schuck and Peter Aubusson, who lead a series of externally funded research projects in this area.
If you are interested in exploring the possibility of applying for one of these awards, in first instance please e-mail your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 13th November 2015.
Terms and conditions
To be eligible for a DECRA, applicants must have been awarded a PhD in the previous five years (or longer if combined with periods of significant career interruption). See Funding Rules and FAQs for detailed information. As a general guideline, to be competitive for one of these awards a researcher should have published a number of refereed journal articles in prestigious journals, including several as first or sole author. Publication of an academic monograph with a prestigious publisher makes applicants highly competitive.
