GRDC Post-doctoral Fellowship

The GRDC is focused on delivering value to Australian grain growers. To achieve this, the GRDC seeks to build research capacity through the GRDC Post-doctoral Fellowship.


The Fellowships will be offered based on a set of eligibility and selection criteria. Details can be found on the Current Procurements page.

Applicants will need to demonstrate that their proposal is:

  • aligned with and adding value to a current ongoing GRDC funded project
  • broadening the experience and skills of the fellow
  • supported with a co-contribution from the research organisation


The application is a 2 page expression of interest (EOI) addressing the eligibility and selection criteria.

Expressions of interest must be emailed to by 5 pm CBR time on 15 January 2018.

Key things to note:

  • The EOI must come from the project leader of the linked project.
  • The institution must endorse the EOI.
  • The fellowship will be for 2 to 3 years.


The Post-doctoral fellow will be contracted on a Standard Research Agreement. Though linked to an existing GRDC project, it will be a separate contract.
