Dear ASC colleagues,

I'm writing to seek your help in identifying candidates for the 2010 L'Oréal Australia For Women In Science Fellowships.

Applications open today and close on Monday 3 May.

The three $20,000 Fellowships are intended to help early-career women scientists to consolidate their careers and rise to leadership positions in science.

The Fellowships are awarded to women who have shown scientific excellence in their career to date and who have an appropriate research plan that will be assisted by the one-year Fellowship.

The 2009 Fellows were:

·         Tamara Davis from the University of Queensland/University of Copenhagen. Tamara is searching for supernovae and dark energy.

·         Marnie Blewitt from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. Marnie is investigating how our genes get turned on and off.

·         Zenobia Jacobs from the University of Wollongong. Zenobia is dating the emergence of human society using the clock inside every grain of sand.

We are looking for women who have completed their PhD in the last five years (allowance is made for maternity leave).

The L'Oréal Australia For Women In Science Fellowships are now in their fourth year. They are supported by the Australian Academy of Science and the Australian National Commission for UNESCO.

The Fellowships are highly competitive and we encourage potential nominees to read the brief profiles of past recipients before applying.

Full criteria for eligibility, application instructions and profiles of past Fellows are online at http://www.scienceinpublic.com.au/loreal.

Applications close at midnight on Monday 3 May 2010 and will only be accepted via the online form.

Please circulate this email to any early-career scientists you think may be eligible for this award.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

Niall Byrne
