New Future Fellows

The big ARC awards for mid-career researchers is announced

100 researchers share $90.5m to supplement salaries and project costs.

The big institutional winners are Monash U, with 16 awards, followed by Uni Melbourne with 12, Uni Queensland 11 and UNSW ten. The balance is shared by 19 other institutions.

That’s the good news. The not so great announcement from the Australian Research Council is that the¬†success rate is 15 per cent.
