Applications are closing soon for the Australia–India Strategic Research Fund (AISRF) Early- and Mid-Career Researcher (EMCR) Fellowships 2019.

The deadline for applications is 9 am (AEST) Wednesday 12 September 2018.

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, particularly the science and research practices and systems

developing the researchers’ leadership skills as future ‘science ambassadors’ for Australia

providing a catalyst for future Australia–India research collaboration.
