    The Australian Academy of Science invites Australian early- and mid-career researchers to apply for the Australia–India Strategic Research Fund (AISRF) Early- and Mid-Career Researcher (EMCR) Fellowships 2018–19. The EMCR Fellowships provide support (up to A$40,500) for Australian researchers to travel to India and work with leading researchers at major Indian science and technology organisations for a period of between 3 and 9 months. They are intended to facilitate long-term science, technology and innovation collaboration between Australia and India by:

    • developing researchers’ expertise in international collaboration and fostering long-term relationships between Australian and Indian researchers
    • increasing Australian researchers’ understanding of Indian culture, science system and research practices
    • developing researchers’ leadership skills as future ‘science ambassadors’ for Australia
    • providing a catalyst for future Australia–India research collaborations.

    Applicants should propose a collaborative research project or a specific activity that has been developed in consultation with the host organisation(s) in India. Proposals will be assessed on the scientific merit of the research and on how well the applicant meets the above aims.

    Due date: 11 September
