ARMS EARMA International Fellowship Program Call for Applications
ARMS is pleased to announce to its members the ARMS-EARMA International Fellowship. The Fellowship program builds on the successful joint Fellowship Program between the European Association of Research Managers & Administrators (EARMA) and the USA sister organisation National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA).
The Fellowship program has three underlying objectives;
1. Transfer of Knowledge (ToK)
2. The training of research administrators;
3. Enhancing and building strong links between research administration systems.
The fellowship is intended to reduce barriers to international research administration and to assist individuals to interpret the multitude of sponsor requirements and administrative compliance – from submission of an application through to post-award and closeout.
The program will provide an opportunity for European and Australasian research administrators to travel to research organisations abroad and immerse themselves in a program of mutual learning and knowledge exchange. Fellows will be expected to pass on their experiences and knowledge of research administration management at their institution, identify best practices and local knowledge of the host institution, and also to respect all organisational rules and cultural practices.
For more information of the Fellowship and how to apply, please click HERE
The closing date for applications is 31 May 2013

The Science and Industry Endowment Fund (SIEF) has funding available for up to 6 fellowships commencing in 2014.
The process of awarding fellowships will begin with an invitation to Australian universities and Publically Funded Research Agencies (PFRA) and Research Institutes to submit proposals. Preferentially, research projects will be collaborative projects between PRFAs and universities. There is also a strong preference for end-user/industry engagement in the project. The proposal, which must be submitted via the University Research Office (or equivalent), will identify the eligible Candidate, the proposed project, Lead supervisor and any other collaborating partners. Proposals will be assessed by a panel of experts drawn from universities, publicly funded research agencies and industry representatives.
SIEF is seeking applications that include a diverse range of Early Career Researchers in order to ensure that it has the strongest field of candidates and projects from which to select.
Further information about the 2014 program, including the application form are available on the SIEF website.
