L'Oréal For Women in Science Fellowships now open

Women in Science

The 2009 L’Oréal Australia For Women in Science fellowships are now open for nomination. Nominations close 1 May 2009.

The three $20,000 Fellowships are intended to help early-career women scientists to consolidate their careers and rise to leadership positions in science.

The Fellowships are awarded to women who have shown scientific excellence in their career to date and who have an appropriate research plan that will be assisted by the one-year Fellowship.

We are looking for women who have completed their PhD in the last five years (we will make allowance for maternity leave).

The L’Oréal Australia For Women In Science Fellowships are now in their third year. They are supported by the Australian Academy of Sciences and the Australian National Commission for UNESCO.

The Fellowships are highly competitive and we encourage potential nominees to read the brief profiles of past recipients before applying.

Full criteria for eligibility, application instructions and profiles of past Fellows are online at www.scienceinpublic.com/loreal.

Applications close at midnight on 1 May 2009.
