Early Career International Research Fellowships

From 2011–2017, the Centre administered a very successful international visitor program. Through this competitive program international scholars were funded to attend any node/s of the Centre, allowing sufficient time for visitors to take part in conferences and collaboratories, to meet all researchers at the nodes they visit and to establish deep-rooted research connections between scholars working in the same or similar fields.

The first call, designed specifically for Distinguished International Visitors, was issued in late 2011.  The response was overwhelming. Of particular note was the quality of applications from young academics.  This led to the introduction of an International Early Career Research (ECR) program that brought scholars within eight years of gaining their PhD to CHE nodes throughout Australia. To date there have been three ECR-specific calls issued in 2012, 2013 and 2014. In 2015 a combined call for Distinguished, Mid-Career and Early Career Researchers applications was issued.

The successful ECR applicants from each call were as follows:
