The Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Coral 
Reef Studies is contacting people who might be interested in applying 
for an ARC Future Fellowship. The ARC Centre has recruited 38 
full-time research fellows in the past 3 years, working in many 
fields relevant for coral reefs (e.g. biophysical sciences, climate 
change, conservation planning, economics, social science, modelling). 
The Centre is a world-leader in coral reef research (see 
http://www.coralcoe.org.au/annualreport08.pdf) with nodes at four 
Australian Universities. James Cook University and the ARC Centre 
will host the 12th International Coral Reef Symposium in Australia in 2012.

The ARC Future Fellowship scheme was launched in 2009. Two hundred 
awards are available each year. They are designed to attract 
outstanding mid-career researchers (5 to 15 years post-PhD) to 
Australia and are open to citizens of all countries. These are 
four-year fellowships that provide salaries of up to $140,000/year 
Institutions that host Future Fellows negotiate additional support 
with applicants, such as salary top-up, research support, and 
continuing employment beyond the term of the fellowship.

Another scheme, ARC Discovery Fellowships, supports postdoctoral 
fellows within 3 years of their PhD. A third scheme, ARC Laureate 
Fellowships supports Professorial Fellows who are rising global 
leaders in their field.

If you are interested in joining the ARC Centre of Excellence for 
Coral Reef Studies using any of these schemes (which span all career 
stages), please contact us for further advice by emailing your CV to
