AUSTRALIAN SYNCHROTRON RESEARCH PROGRAM
THE ASRP RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS
The Australian Synchrotron Research Program has been established under the
Major National Research Facilities Scheme. This program provides access for
Australian scientists to the Advanced Photon Source, a third generation
synchrotron light source at the Argonne National Laboratory in Chicago, USA,
and to the Photon Factory, a second generation synchrotron source at the KEK
laboratory in Tsukuba, Japan.
The ASRP has initiated a number of research fellowships with the aim of
fostering Australian expertise in synchrotron-based science. We seek bright
and enthusiastic young scientists who have recently received, or are about to
receive, a PhD in a relevant area of science and who wish to pursue their
career in a field requiring synchrotron radiation facilities.
Each ASRP Fellow will be attached to a research group at one of the member
institutions. The eligible institutions are: the Australian National
University, ANSTO, CSIRO, Monash University, the University of Melbourne, the
University of New South Wales, the University of Queensland, and the
University of Sydney. Applicants are required to submit a description of
the research they propose to pursue during their tenure as an ASRP Fellow.
It is expected that the research program will require extensive use of the
ASRP facilities in either Japan or the USA. The proposal should be formulated
in consultation with the sponsoring research group.
The fellowships will be tenable for up to three years. The salary will be up
to $45,000 depending on the experience of the applicant. The fellowship also
includes an annual research grant. At this stage we anticipate offering two
fellowships in 1998.
Applications close on November 15 1997. Application forms, information and
other particulars are available from:
