About the Program

It’s all about you. And what you need to progress your research career and shine as a researcher.  

You will have an opportunity to work with a unique mix of interdisciplinary experts and collaborative clustering that will help to solve complex local, national and global problems. 

What makes the Vice-Chancellor's Research Fellowships different?

We will enable you to build your profile, develop your leadership skills and expand your networks when you align your research to one of RMIT’s Strategic Research Priority Themes and one or more of our Enabling Capability Platforms (ECPs).

RMIT’s Vice-Chancellor's Research Fellows make significant contributions to RMIT’s research priorities by developing and engaging in high-quality, high impact research projects, which address local, national, regional and global challenges. 

RMIT’s eight Enabling Capability Platforms bring together researchers from across our Schools and Colleges, differentiating RMIT in the way we enable researchers to engage beyond traditional discipline boundaries and to build connections across academia, as well as with industry, government, and communities. 

8 Strategic Research Priority Themes

Align your research to one of our 8 strategic research priority themes. These themes represent areas RMIT wishes to enhance in our research and innovation capability to deliver research impact. The themes represent a combination of cross-disciplinary, and cross ECP focus areas. The themes are described in broad terms and we encourage applications that demonstrate how your research aligns with a specific theme and generates economic, societal, and environmental benefits beyond academia. 

Applicants will be asked to select one theme only that aligns with your research. 

NOTE: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants are encouraged to apply to all themes. Noting the Indigenous Knowledge theme is only open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants.  

Information underpins almost every aspect of society today. Information is changing how we do business, how we connect, how we work, how we live. Advancing technologies, such as AI, cyberphysical systems, digital twins, microsatellites, blockchain, and cybersecurity, are fuelling that revolution. And the environmental, human, organisational and social impacts of changes, both positive and negative, must be understood and accounted at every step.

Sub themes

  • Cyberphysical, intelligent- and autonomous systems 
  • Digital Finance and Digital Assets 
  • AI and Future of Work  
  • Space and Spatial Technologies 

NOTE: Candidates can apply to one theme only.

An ageing population, pandemics and increasing mental health problems will challenge humanity for some time to come. We have an opportunity to engage advances in digital health and health informatics (bioinformatics) and medical technologies and devices, to promote health: from preventive measures such as vaccination or diet; to better diagnostics, prognostics and personalized therapies. Coming together in the context of social inclusion and ethical innovation- so no vulnerable groups are left behind, as we build a healthier society. 

Sub themes 

  • Digital Health and Health Informatics   
  • Mental Health   
  • Healthy Ageing   
  • Medical Technologies and Devices  

NOTE: Candidates can apply to one theme only.

The way we organise our productive economy is changing rapidly, including how we structure and connect enterprises, the role and function of our skilled workforce, the enabling tools including the digital tools, plant and machinery and materials. This innovation requires on-shoring driven by security and self reliance (as evidenced by Covid-19). It will combine innovation in business practice and connectivity, business or factory floor activities facilitated by new technology and materials and changes in work place culture all assisted by digitization

Sub themes

  • Supply Chain Innovation-including Onshoring 
  • Enterprises Based on Advanced Material and Manufacturing Scale Up 
  • Innovation in Work and Business practice  
  • Distributed Digitisation for Community and Industrial Enterprises 

NOTE: Candidates can apply to one theme only.

Rapidly transitioning the world to a more environmentally sustainable, resilient basis is vital to future wellbeing. This includes decarbonising all sectors, industries and regions through a combination of far-reaching, integrated strategies. All areas of society also need to adapt to the risks climate change increasingly poses, including transformational changes in where and how we live. At the same time, we need to reduce the risk of other potential disasters, including sociotechnical, cyber and health disasters, as COVID-19 has illustrated. 

Sub themes 

  • Decarbonised Technologies and Systems   
  • Climate Change Adaptation   
  • Disaster Resilience   
  • Sustainable Urban Design

NOTE: Candidates can apply to one theme only.

Shared infrastructural systems are a major determinant of social, environmental and economic outcomes near and far. New and current systems need to be designed, governed and operated in ways that are not only more effective, efficient, integrated and just, but deliver multiple co-benefits. The long lead time of infrastructure demands an anticipatory approach that considers and positively shapes the future. New materials and technologies, new digital data and governance, new paradigms such as circular economy thinking, and new consumption models including radically reduced demand, are all part of the new infrastructural systems we need. 

Sub themes 

  • Circular Economies   
  • Water and Energy Infrastructure   
  • Housing and Transport Futures   
  • Digital Infrastructure 

NOTE: Candidates can apply to one theme only.

The creative technologies theme encompasses all the complex ways in which everyday media and digital culture has saturated everyday life. This theme explores how automation, and its gamification, is impacting creative industries such as games, social media and sound design. It considers the social, cultural and political dimensions of technology. It also reflects on how we are shaping, and being shaped by, these technological practices, processes and policies. How can we design for creative and critical technologies for the future? 

Sub themes 

  • Automation in Creative Industries   
  • Games / Gamification   
  • Designing Technology   
  • Sound Design and Music Futures

NOTE: Candidates can apply to one theme only.

Key dates

Applications open 1 September 2021 and close at 17:00 on 28 September 2021 Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST). Late applications cannot be accepted.

All successful candidates will commence no later than 1 March 2022.

Frequently asked questions

Here are answers to some of the frequently asked questions regarding Vice-Chancellor's Research Fellowships.

Yes, you may apply, but your PhD must be awarded by the time offers will be extended to successful candidates (approximately December 2021). Successful candidates who are offered a position must be able to demonstrate they have met all the requirements for completion of their PhD program, be able to adopt the title of Doctor, and be able to produce a statement of academic completion upon request.

We are recruiting Senior Research Fellows, Research Fellows, Postdoctoral Fellows and Indigenous Research Fellows whose experience and expertise align with one of our 8 Strategic Research Priority Themes.

For this round, due to the impacts of COVID-19 on Australian borders and travel, we are only accepting applications for the Vice Chancellors Research Fellowships from applicants:

  1. Who are Australian Citizens or Australian Permanent Residents at the time of applying (applies to those both living in Australia or living overseas)

    NOTE: you must also be able to physically commence employment at one of RMIT’s Australian campuses by 1 March 2022;
     
  2. Who hold a current Australian work visa and living in Australia at the time of applying. You will be required to clearly identify your Visa during the application process.

    NOTE: Due to frequent changes in government advice, based on your visa status, we will determine if your application is able to be progressed. For those applicants deemed to have an appropriate visa, you must also be able to physically commence employment at one of RMIT’s Australian campuses by 1 March 2022.

To be eligible for a Postdoctoral Fellowship your PhD must have been awarded in the previous 5 years from the application closing date. This means have an award of PhD date on or after 28 September 2016. If you were awarded a PhD prior to 28 September 2016, but have experienced a period of career interruption that would be commensurate with an award of the PhD within the previous 5 years, you may still apply.  Please provide your career interruption periods in the application form. This will enable us to assess your equivalent number of years since award of your PhD.

How to calculate your FTE for the application form.

Calculate your contracted hours per week;

FTE uses the following measurements:

  • 1 day = 0.2 FTE
  • 2 days = 0.4 FTE
  • 3 days = 0.6 FTE
  • 4 Days = 0.8 FTE
  • 5 days = 1 FTE

Take your FTE and multiply by the number of months you worked at that FTE

This example illustrates a year worked at various FTE’s:

0.8 FTE for 4 months = 0.8 x 4 = 3.2 months

0.6 FTE for 6 months = 0.6 x 6 = 3.6 months

1 FTE for 2 months = 1 x 2 = 2 months

TOTAL = 3.2 + 3.6 + 2 = 8.8 months

RMIT recruits with an emphasis on merit over quantity of output. Applicants will be invited to contribute a statement for consideration of achievement relative to research opportunity as part of the application process. The following are examples of significant career interruptions which may be considered in the Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship applications: carer’s responsibilities, parental leave and illness. As part of your application for a fellowship, you will be asked to discuss career achievements relative to research opportunity.

RMIT wants to ensure our people have the flexibility to take care of their life just as they take care of work. The University supports flexible work arrangements and will also consider requests for part-time positions.

Yes, you can apply for an RMIT Vice-Chancellor’s Fellowship while you hold a research fellowship at another institution. Please ensure that any other fellowships you hold are listed in your CV as part of your application.

No, you should establish which Fellowship category is most suited to you given the eligibility criteria noted in the position descriptions for each category, as well your skills and experience and apply for that fellowship.

RMIT staff members with a continuing academic position are not eligible to apply for a Vice-Chancellor’s Fellowship, except if you apply as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.

RMIT staff on casual or fixed-term contracts who meet the Fellowship’s eligibility criteria are eligible to apply.

Yes, there is no limit on how many times you can apply for a Vice-Chancellor’s Fellowship. If a previous application was unsuccessful and you have developed your academic track record and/or gained further experience since that application, RMIT encourages you to apply again.
