Australia-China Science and Research Fund (ACSRF) Young Scientists Exchange Programme (YSEP) 2015

The Australia-China Young Scientists Exchange Programme (YSEP) is a joint initiative funded by the Australian Department of Industry and Science and the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST). It is supported by the Commonwealth of Australia under the Australia-China Science and Research Fund (science and research knowledge exchange).  

The YSEP is a two week long exchange to China designed to offer early or mid-career Australian scientists a platform from which to develop or enhance both scientific and industry linkages with colleagues in China.  Successful applicants will receive a return economy airfare to Beijing, visa fees, accommodation, domestic travel within China, meals and incidentals. 

A group of up to 20 high quality early to mid-career researchers will be selected and must be available to travel to China during 1-13 November 2015.

To be eligible the applicant must:

  • be an Australian citizen or resident with no consolidated links with China and have not lived, studied or worked in China for longer than a total of 3 months;
  • be an early to mid-career researcher (defined as a researcher who has had between 3-10 years of research experience since the award of his/her PhD, or equivalent research qualification, with the PhD having been awarded between 3 and 15 years prior to the closing date for submission of application);
  • be employed by a Monash and working in a field of research identified as a priority under the ACSRF (natural and physical science disciplines, including technology and engineering);

  • not be an employee of a non-corporate Commonwealth entity under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability ACT 2013;
