Forrest Fellowships opening soon for 2025!

7 May 2024

The Forrest Research Foundation will be offering up to five prestigious three-year post-doctoral Fellowships in 2025 to outstanding researchers from around the world to conduct paradigm-shifting research based at any of Western Australia’s five universities.

The Fellowships will be open to candidates from all countries and all disciplines and are intended to accelerate opportunities for outstanding researchers.

Applicants will have an outstanding academic profile and will have already made significant personal research contributions to their discipline. They will have gained high-level research experience through studying and researching in a number of different institutions, and their innovative doctoral research will be recognised well beyond their current institutional home.


These generous fellowships provide a stipend and accommodation at Forrest Hall in a luxury self-contained studio apartment, with a total value of over AU$420,000. Within Forrest Hall, you will live amongst other researchers in a vibrant and inspiring research environment. The Foundation also offers a unique ‘researcher’s journey’ program that gives our Fellows access to world leading researchers, mentoring, connections with Australia’s learned academies and more.

How to apply

Applications will open in mid-May and close on 30 June 2024. Please follow us on LinkedIn for the latest updates or sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of this page.
