In 2011 Atax will offer two Research Fellowships to international academics and professionals keen to further their research in the field of taxation and related disciplines. Each Fellowship is valued at up to A$7,500.
Research Fellows normally spend four weeks working at Atax on a mutually agreed area of research. During their stay, Fellows are involved in the following activities:
- producing at least one research paper on taxation, preferably in collaboration with Atax academic(s), to be published in a refereed journal with due acknowledgement of the Fellowship;
- conducting an Atax research seminar for interested members of the broader tax research community; and
- participating in Atax collegial activities during the period of the Fellowship.
Atax will provide office space and computer equipment at its campus in Sydney, Australia. Fellows will be responsible for organising their own travel and accommodation arrangements. The preferred timing for successful applicants to undertake the Fellowship is August - October 2011, but other times of the year may also be possible.
Selection is based on the applicant’s research proposal and on their ability to contribute to the Atax research profile. A track record in collaborating with Atax academics will be considered as an advantage.
Applications are invited from overseas academic and professional researchers working in taxation and related disciplines from around the world. To apply, applicants must send a letter of application, indicating the area they wish to research under the Fellowship, a current curriculum vitae and their preferred timing to undertake the Fellowship.Applications should be sent to Professor Binh Tran-Nam, Research Fellowship Convenor. Applications to undertake the Research Fellowship in 2011 must be received by 19 November 2010. Successful applicants will be notified by 31 December 2010 and undertake the Fellowship in 2011.
