The Group of Eight (Go8) is accepting applications for its annual fellowships which are offered to early career researchers in Europe to work in Go8 universities for up to six months. Each Fellowship is worth up to AUD 20,000.
The Go8 European Fellowship scheme recognises the importance of international contacts for early career researchers. It is envisaged that Fellows will continue to collaborate with Australian research partners when they return to their home institutions.
