The UNSW Scientia Fellowship program is one of the cornerstones of UNSW’s 2025 Strategy. Its aim is to attract and retain the best and brightest people, with outstanding research track records.
The UNSW Scientia Fellowship Program
The UNSW Scientia Fellowship Program, established as a cornerstone of the UNSW 2025 Strategy, aims to attract and retain the highest research performers on a trajectory to being exceptional research leaders and mentors. Over the ten year lifespan of the program up to 290 researchers will be appointed into research intensive Fellowships. Eighteen UNSW Scientia Fellows were appointed in the inaugural 2017 round and forty-four in 2018. Over forty Fellowship appointments will be made at academic levels A to D in 2018 for commencement in 2019. The key distinctive features of the UNSW Scientia Fellowship Program include a tenure track fellowship with a career pathway commitment that has unprecedented flexibility. UNSW Scientia Fellows will have access to a range of development opportunities relevant to career stage across research, teaching and leadership, with a significant support and collaboration package.
UNSW’s Strategic Priorities
UNSW has a bold vision to be Australia’s global University, to improve and transform lives through world-leading research, exemplary education and advancing a just society. The UNSW 2025 Strategy sets out the University’s vision to be: recognised as an international exemplar in equity, diversity and inclusion. Our success will have been built upon embracing the diversity and cultural richness of our communities and ensuring that our staff and students can achieve their full potential regardless of background. Measures of success include the gender balance in UNSW roles at all grades and the proportion of Indigenous staff. In pursuit of this vision, the UNSW Scientia Fellowship Program will embed diversity in appointment practices to ensure appropriate gender representation, cultural diversity and disciplinary expertise.
