Applications are open for Kathleen Fitzpatrick Visiting Fellowships in Comparative Constitutional Law in 2019

admin - 19th July 2018

Professor Adrienne Stone is the holder of a Kathleen Fitzpatrick Australian Laureate Fellowship awarded by the Australian Research Council from 2016 – 2021. The purpose of the award is to establish a world-class, capacity building centre for comparative constitutional law at Melbourne Law School known as the Laureate Program in Comparative Constitutional Law.  Further, recipients of the award are funded to undertake an ambassadorial role to promote women in research.

Within the Program, the Kathleen Fitzpatrick Visiting Fellowships support outstanding female researchers to build the Project’s research capacity, undertake innovative research programs and mentor early career researchers. As such, the Fellowships allow outstanding female doctoral and early career researchers the opportunity to visit Melbourne and work with the program for one to two months each year.

The Fellows will be closely integrated into the Laureate Program and the academic life of the Centre for Comparative Constitutional Studies, taking part in projects, events and workshops, and participating in work-in-progress seminars. The Melbourne Institute for Comparative Constitutional Law conference will be held  9 – 11 December 2019 in Melbourne, and applicants are encouraged to consider timing their proposed program to include this event.

Funding of up to AUD$3000 will be considered towards the costs of travel to, and accommodation in Melbourne.  Fellows from outside Australia are responsible for obtaining and funding any necessary visas.
