Uni Sydney’s $100m spend on research talent  

Those thumping surpluses come in handy

The university announces the Horizon programme  – 40 continuing FT/PT research positions paying $113 000 to nearly $160 000 (plus super) and “up to” $100 000 per annum in research funding.

The five-year fellowships are 80 per cent research for the first three with a “balanced” teaching and research load for the remainder.

They are for early career researchers, within ten years of completing PhDs, “with outstanding research track records on a rising trajectory.”

Fellowships are open to all , for research on climate change, health,(and a distinct subject) sustainability. “Programmes could include the development of novel technologies, biomedical, legal, business, design, policy and political instruments.”
