Expressions of interest are invited from early career researchers of exceptional calibre who wish to pursue research in Social Impact related areas for a full-time Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship position at the Centre for Social Impact (CSI).

The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will be responsible for undertaking collaborative and self-directed research in an area aligned with the research objectives of CSI , in particular with regards to measuring and reporting social outcomes.

To be eligible to apply, applicants must have been awarded a PhD, conferred (dated on testamur) no earlier than 1 January 2011; or for applicants who are expecting to soon be awarded a PhD, it must be conferred (dated on testamur) by 30 November 2015.

Eligible applicants with a relevant background interested in pursuing research in Social Impact are encouraged to complete an Expression of Interest to CSI and send together with attachments specified in this EOI to

We welcome your CSI EOI from today until midnight Sunday 14 June 2015.

  1. Completed CSI EOI form (includes provision of 2 referees);
  2. 4 page project proposal;
  3. Current CV
  4. Proof of your PhD

Submit Your EOI by email here

(no later than midnight Sunday 14 June 2015)

Please note:

  • This EOI is in a similar format to the UNSW 2016 Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship application.
  • EOIs not in this format and not submitted by the deadline will not be considered by CSI because the turnaround time between review and submission to the UNSW Business School does not allow for adequate time to review and work on final submission.

What next:

Unsuccessful candidates will be advised on or shortly after Wednesday 17 June 2015.

The most outstanding candidate(s) will be advised of the outcome on or before 5pm Wednesday 17 June and will continue to work with Associate Professor Kristy Muir or a delegated member of the CSI Research (Social Outcomes) team on their final submission for the UNSW 2016 VC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship.

This finalised EOI will be submitted to the UNSW Business School on Friday 3 July 2015. If successful at the faculty level, the applicant’s submission will proceed through to the final selection stage of the UNSW 2016 Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship.

Successful final stage UNSW VC selection will secure the full-time postdoctoral research fellowship with the Centre for Social Impact starting January 2016.

Outstanding applicants that are not successful in progressing through to the UNSW Business School or UNSW selection stages may be invited to use their EOI to CSI to apply for a full-time postdoctoral research position with CSI later in 2015.

After reviewing all the relevant information, if you have queries please direct them to Dr Abigail Powell, Senior Research Fellow, 8936 0916 or in her absence Megan Day, CSI Operations Manager, 02 8936 0990.
