Supporting a research fellowship will provide an opportunity for young scientists to build a research career with real impact.

Research is central to everything that ANU Earth Sciences does, shaping our educational experience and addressing the fundamental questions about the nature of the Earth and its environment.


Professor Daniela Rubatto

Without a Fellowship I would have not stayed in Australia and possibly not even in academia or science

I first arrived at ANU as a junior postdoc in 1998 and I was immensely grateful to the School when, I was given a 2-year ANU Research Fellowship to continue my work. That made all the difference to my career. In those two years I pursued new research directions, independently and freely and produced my first publications as a postdoc to demonstrate I was an innovative researcher.  The research and publication I produced in those two bridging years then allowed me to be competitive for Australian Research Fellowships, which supported my career for the next 13 years. The ANU Research Fellowship also offered the necessary job security at a crucial time for me to start a new family.

“I am supported by an ARC Queen Elizabeth II research fellowship which has given me opportunities to do work in Antarctica, Indonesia, Japan and Greenland. My research focuses on how the Earth’s climate has behaved over the last millennium, and what that tells us about the climate changes we are seeing now.”  Read more about Nerilie’s research
