Applications call for the Australian Museum AMF/AMRI Postgraduate Award.
The Australian Museum Research Institute (AMRI) focuses on some of today’s major environmental challenges: climate change impacts on biodiversity, the detection and biology of pest species, and understanding what constitutes and influences effective biodiversity conservation. Our research is underpinned by outstanding scientific infrastructure including extensive natural history collections, wildlife genomics, and microscopy laboratories, informatics, and a coral reef research station at the northern end of the Great Barrier Reef.
The maximum amount of the fellowship is $2,500 for local applicants and $4,000 for international applicants to assist with living costs, travel, and research expenses.
The Australian Museum AMF/AMRI Postgraduate Award is open to all students enrolled in any postgraduate qualification in a field relevant to the Australian Museum’s 2017-2021 Science Strategy. Applications should address AMRI research priorities.
Students are encouraged to apply to orientate their applications towards any of the Museum’s collections and research programs including cultural and anthropological as well as natural science collections. Moreover, students must be supervised by an AMRI research scientist or collection manager while pursuing a postgraduate degree. Furthermore, students are encouraged to spend time at the Museum as part of their research program.
Applications should include a summary statement of the student’s academic record. Where necessary, the university-based supervisor may be consulted regarding the student’s quality and ability.
