The Centre for Public, International and Comparative Law will consider applications from suitable applicants for appointment as Visiting Fellows. Visiting Fellowships are awarded for periods ranging from one month to twelve months.

At this stage of its development, the Centre does not offer stipendiary fellowships. Although the Centre does not directly fund Visiting Fellows, in appropriate cases it will support applications for funding from Australian or overseas agencies.

The Centre provides Visiting Fellows with fully equipped office accommodation, computers, IT support, Internet connections, access to the extensive conventional and electronic holdings of the network of University of Queensland Libraries, administrative support and other normal academic privileges. Above all, Visiting Fellows have the opportunity of interacting with a thriving research community in the fields of public law, international law, comparative law and legal philosophy. The Centre is an ideal station for scholars on sabbatical who wish to research within these fields of interest.

The number of Visiting Fellowships awarded at any time will depend on available resources.  The final decision on the appointment of Visiting Fellows rests with the Head of the T C Beirne School of Law.

Obligations of Visiting Fellows

Visiting Fellows are expected to meet the following obligations:

  • Pursue the research project outlined in their applications or other research in consultation with the Director;
  • Participate in the Centre's activities as a member of the Centre;
  • Present at least one seminar on research in progress;
  • Suitably acknowledge the membership of the Centre in any publication, conference paper or research report that results from research done wholly or partly at the Centre or with the Centre's support; and
  • Inform the Director of any publication, conference paper or research report that results from research done wholly or partly at the Centre or with the Centre's support


Written applications for Visiting Fellowships must be accompanied by the following:

  • A Curriculum Vitae;
  • A bibliography of published work;
  • A research proposal outlining the research project to be pursued at the Centre; and
  • Sources of funding available to the applicant (sabbatical entitlements, grants, scholarships, private funding etc.)

 Note: This is a research, not a teaching, fellowship.

Applications must be received at least 3 months before the proposed date of commencement of the Fellowship. Applications should be mailed or emailed to:
