EOIs now open: ARC Discovery Early Career Award 2022

QUT’s Digital Media Research Centre (DMRC) is calling for Expressions of Interest from outstanding external early career researchers (up to 5 years post-PhD) who are considering applying for an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA), for submission in November 2020 and commencement in 2022. We will offer assistance to applicants whose work is aligned with our goal to undertake world-leading research for a creative, inclusive and fair digital media environment. Our structured, expert assistance covers all aspects of the DECRA application, including alignment of track record and project, concept, disciplinary contribution, method, impact and benefit, and budget. Applicants to the DECRA scheme may be from Australia or overseas. Please study the DMRC site (https://research.qut.edu.au/dmrc/) to acquaint yourself with our people, priorities, and projects.


EOIs will be assessed in two stages:

Stage 1. Please send us a full CV by 13 April 2020, outlining your publication and research track record in detail.

Stage 2. We will invite the most competitive candidates to complete a notice of intent to apply, including a two-page project proposal, by 27 April 2020.

Following a second stage of assessment, a small number of applicants will be invited to work with us to develop a full application to the ARC by November 2020.

Questions and expressions of interest should be sent to dmrc@qut.edu.au


Note: Internal applications should follow the internal NOI process established by your respective faculty and will receive full support of the DMRC if your NOI is accepted.
