Australian Research Council Future Fellowships for mid-career researchers

The Australian Research Council (ARC) is currently calling for applicants
for the Future Fellowships scheme.  This mid-career research fellowship
provides salary and project costs for four-year to successful applicants
who have been awarded their PhD between 5 and 15 years (see
www.arc.gov.au/ncgp/futurefel/future_default.htm for further information).

*The MARCS Institute*
At the MARCS Institute, a vibrant interdisciplinary Research Institute of
the University of Western Sydney, we will work with mid-career researchers
to develop highly competitive Future Fellowship applications to conduct
research in our well-equipped research environment in any of our 5
research programs:

* Bioelectronics & Neuroscience: computational and electronic modelling to
reverse engineer the brain and biomedical instrumentation design.
* Human Machine Interaction: Believability of virtual agents¹ behaviour in
cyber-physical worlds; cyber-physical interfaces, natural interaction
between virtual and physical worlds.
* Multisensory Processing: Research investigating brain and behaviour to
understand the processes by which sensory information is combined,
represented and acted upon.
* Music Cognition & Action: Investigation of the temporal dynamics in
individual and group performance and perception of music and dance.
* Speech & Language: Research within and between languages, with infants,
children and adults focussing on speech perception, speech production, and
related skills such as literacy.

The MARCS Institute is 100-person strong, 1500m2 research hub with >$3.5M
of specialist equipment for conducting behavioural, neuroscience, and
computational research on human-human and human-machine communication in
normal, heightened and degraded contexts. MARCS is involved in a range of
national and international research collaborations and industry
partnerships and the MARCS team includes members and collaborators from
Medicine, Neuroscience, Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics,
Linguistics, Psychology, Education, Music, and Communication Arts.
