Research Fellowships

The University of Newcastle is ranked in the top 10 in Australia for research. We have a proven track record for innovation and a reputation as a place of research excellence.

In addition to more than 800 University academics, UON hosts more than 200 research academics supported by external funding.  We support and provide opportunity for our researchers by providing additional funds, specialist support and access to world-class facilities such as NIER and HMRI

Many UON researchers have been awarded highly competitive external fellowships through the Australian Research Council (ARC) and the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).

UON supports NHMRC Research Fellows with start-up funds, salary supplement and guaranteed salary support for a period of two years.  These researchers often move on to University appointments.

The Gladys M Brawn Memorial Fellowship Scheme provides fellowships to scholars who are or have demonstrated the potential to become world recognised academics or clinicians, in medicine or in disciplines related to medicine.

If you are new and transferring grants and/or fellowships to the University of Newcastle, please contact the Research Grants Team who will help you with this process.
