The Forrest Research Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship 2024 for early-stage postdoctoral researchers.

Application Deadline: June 30, 2024

Applications are now open for the 2024 Forrest Research Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship. Forrest Fellowships are offered to early-stage postdoctoral researchers who have outstanding academic profiles and who have already made significant personal research contributions within and beyond their discipline. Forrest Fellows will have been among the top performing students in their undergraduate and graduate cohorts. They will already have gained high-level research experience through studying and researching in several different institutions, and their innovative doctoral research will be recognised well beyond their current institutional home. Forrest Fellows will wish to extend their postdoctoral research well beyond the focus of their doctoral dissertation and will aim to do so in a way that builds intellectual bridges within and between disciplines. Forrest Fellows are also committed to communicating their research to others, to have a positive impact on the world around us.


  • To be eligible to apply applicants must be in their final year of PhD or no more than two years post PhD conferral.


The Forrest Research Foundation will provide funding for:

  • Salary
    • Salary consistent with a Level A Step 8 appointment (for example The University of Western Australia Salary Scales approximately $99,905 in salary plus 17% superannuation)
  • Accommodation Allowance
    • An accommodation allowance of $24,128 per annum in 2024 (subject to marginal tax rate)
  • Research and travel allowance
    • A once-off research and travel allowance of up to $12,000. This allowance is available for approved research-related expenses, overseas research, and conference travel. 
  • Relocation allowance
    • All interstate and international Fellows can apply for a relocation allowance, including an economy airfare to Perth, which can be discussed with the Director if successful.
