The Australian Academy of Science, which manages the Australia-India Strategic Research Fund’s Early and Mid-Career Researcher (EMCR) fellowships, will open its next call for applications on July 3.
The EMCR fellowships offer up to AUD 40,500 for Australian researchers to travel to India and work with researchers at leading Indian science and technology institutions and universities, for a period of between three to nine months.
The fellowships are intended to facilitate long-term science, technology and innovation collaboration between the two countries. The fellowships are a component of the AISRF (Australia-India Strategic Research Fund), a platform for bilateral collaboration in science jointly managed and funded by the governments of Australia and India.
Researchers working in natural science (basic and applied), engineering science, mathematics, statistics and health are eligible to apply.
A reciprocal fellowships scheme funded by the Government of India will support Indian scientists chosen to visit Australia.
