Wurru-wurru Research Fellowship announced

The Fellowship will be awarded to exceptional early career researchers in the mathematical sciences whose research has the potential to have a significant impact, either in fundamental research or toward practical applications.

The name “wurru-wurru” means “sky” in the Woi wurrung language of the Wurundjeri people. This award has been endorsed in collaboration with the Wurundjeri Land and Compensation Cultural Heritage Council Aboriginal Corporation.

Starting in 2020, one Wurru-wurru Research Fellowship will be awarded per year to early career researchers, to be taken up in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne.

Outstanding candidates are invited to apply via mathjobs.org once the fellowships are advertised. The application deadline, eligibility criteria and further information for the fellowship will be posted soon.
