Deakin University Postdoctoral Research Fellowships

The Deakin University Postdoctoral Research Fellowships (DUPRF) support and develop early career researchers identified as potential rising stars, aiming to enhance the capacity and capability in key research areas and build the next generation of high achieving and internationally competitive researchers.
