The Federal Government has announced 200 Australian Research Council Future Fellowships “to address the lack of Australian opportunities available for our talented mid-career researchers.”

Innovation and Industry Minister, Senator Kim Carr, says the funding reflects the Government’s commitment to ensuring a strong Australian research workforce.

The scheme is designed to bring “the best minds from around the globe” to strengthen Australia’s research capacity, says Senator Carr.

This will ensure we have the skills needed as our academic workforce ages.

“In this group of 200 researchers, 10 have returned to Australia and 22 are overseas citizens who we welcome to our shores, Senator Carr says.

“I congratulate the Future Fellows and thank them for their contribution to our country.”

The Future Fellowships scheme was launched last year and is awarding up to 1000 fellowships over five years at a total value of $844 million. The first 200 recipients were announced in September 2009.
