The University of Queensland (UQ) Strategic Plan highlights the need to attract and retain the best researchers from all over the world and develop our capacity to invest in the best research talent. UQ Amplify is a key component of this aim, representing an institution-wide approach to attracting, retaining and developing externally-funded Fellows. UQ Amplify:

  • Coordinates and unifies the University’s investment in externally-funded Fellows;
  • Positions UQ more competitively in the sector as a destination for externally-funded Fellows;
  • Enhances career development for fellows through an appropriately-scaled active involvement in Teaching; and
  • Enhances career pathways for externally-funded Fellows.

For eligible externally-funded Fellows, UQ Amplify provides for:

  • A fixed-term contract at UQ following conclusion of their externally-funded Fellowship subject to a successful application to this program.
  • Access to the University’s teaching program through an agreed teaching portfolio.
