The Innovation and Enterprise Research Lab is recruiting Chancellor’s
Fellows in the area of Cognitive Robotics, Social Robotics, Smarter
Living/Planet Technologies, the Internet of Things,
Knowledge Representation, Risk Management and Computational Law.  The
Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Scheme aims to support the
University of Technology, Sydney research strategy by attracting and
retaining excellent researchers who will strengthen the national and
international profile of UTS research.

The Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Scheme aims to support
UTS’ strategic intent to be a research leader in specific areas across each
of the following six key Research

   - Health Futures; Sustainability and Built Environment; Creative and
   Civil Societies; Business Innovation; Communication and Intelligent
   Systems; Future Services and Industries

These Fellowships are extremely prestigious and highly competitive.
Applicants must have an outstanding *track record *relative to opportunity
in order to be short-listed.


The Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Scheme enables
early-career researchers to work with senior and established UTS
researchers. Fellows will have an opportunity for gaining international
research experience as an integral part of their Fellowship, preparing them
for an international career and ensuring access to high-quality research

Fellowships are offered for either three years for a research-only
appointment; or four years for a combination research and teaching

Applicants will have been awarded a research doctoral degree (equivalent to
an Australian PhD degree) within 5 years of the closing date for Full
Applications. Research doctoral degree candidates whose thesis is under
examination at the closing date, and research doctoral degree candidates
who will submit their PhD thesis by 31 December 2012 may also apply.
International applications are welcome.

The number of Fellowships awarded will depend on the quality of the
candidates and the funding available. In 2010, UTS awarded as many as ten
CPD Fellowships, which increased to twelve in 2011. In 2012, a record
sixteen Fellowship applicants were successful.

Fellows will initially be appointed at Academic Salary Level A Step 4 or
Level B Step 2, based on years of experience. Effective 1 January 2013, the
annual salary for Level A Step 4 will be A$79,822 and for Level B Step 2
will be A$87,179. Applicants with less than 2 years experience since the
award of their PhD (at the closing date for Full Applications) should
expect to be offered Fellowships at Level A. Project funding of up to
$45,000 is also available.

*Application Process*

The two-stage application process involves an *Expression of Interest* (EOI)
stage and an invited* Full Application* stage.

Prior to lodging an EOI, Fellowship applicants must gain support from the
Faculty/School in which they are proposing to work. Only applicants who
have the agreement of a UTS Supervisor are eligible to apply and must
consult closely with him/her in developing an Expression of Interest.

A valid EOI application requires an online registration, followed by the
electronic submission of the EOI application document using the template
provided. *All applicants must fill in the online EOI Registration form *which
can be accessed here:

   - CPDRF 2013 EOI Online Registration     (Now Open)

The following links contain the documents you will need to submit an
Expression of Interest under the Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research
Fellowships Scheme 2013:

   - Guidelines and Information for Applicants (PDF, 80KB)
   - ‘Expression of Interest’ - Instructions and Template (Docx, 44KB)

Once eligibility has been checked and confirmed from the registration
details, applicants will receive instructions for the online submission of
their EOI application document (using the template provided above).
Applicants are therefore encouraged to complete the registration process as
soon as practical, ideally at least one week before the EOI deadline. Late
submissions or application documents submitted without prior online
registration and eligibility confirmation will not be accepted.
