Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards

Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards (DECRAs) are awarded to promising early career researchers (ECRs) who have been awarded a PhD within five years, or longer if combined with periods of significant career interruption. The award gives ECRs an opportunity for diverse career pathways in both teaching and research, and research-only positions in high quality and supportive environments with a broadened aim to expand Australia's knowledge base and research capability.
