The Gledden Visiting Fellowships are part of the estate bequeathed to the University by the late Robert John Gledden to promote and encourage education and research at the University in the disciplines of applied science, more particularly relating to surveying, engineering, mining or cognate subjects.
Fellowships are awarded to enable researchers who are capable of making a significant contribution to the research effort of the University to undertake a period of collaborative research with a UWA host.
The fellowships are open to researchers who have doctoral degrees or equivalent qualifications or experience and who are mid-career researchers or senior researchers.
Remuneration: Fellowships provide round trip economy airfare and approximately $1500 per week inclusive of accommodation and a modest living allowance for up to a maximum of 90 days. All awards are in Australian dollars. Funding is not provided for accompanying spouse or families.
The next call for nominations for the 2017 Gledden Visiting Fellowships will open on 30 April 2016, with an application deadline of 1 August 2016.
