> Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards: Call for Expressions of Interest
> In 2011, the Australian Research Council is introducing a new funding scheme for early career researchers, the Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA), for funding commencing in 2012 (http://www.arc.gov.au/ncgp/decra.htm). We hereby call for expressions of interest from eligible researchers wishing to conduct their DECRA research at QUT in the communication, media, cultural studies and journalism disciplines.
> We are the leading media research institution in Australia, having been awarded a ranking of 5 out of 5 (well above world standard) in the Language, Communication and Culture code overall, including a ranking of 5 in the sub-field Communications and Media Studies (one of only two), and a 4 (above world standard) in the Cultural Studies field, in the recent ERA assessment conducted by the Australian Government.
> QUT is the headquarters of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation (CCI - http://cci.edu.au/), the only nationally-funded centre in the media and communication field, with strong ties to law, economics, business, and education, thus allowing for multiple cross-disciplinary options for research. Successful DECRA applicants will benefit from the vibrant scholarly environment at QUT, and work closely with world leaders in media, communication, cultural and journalism studies.
> For more information on how to develop a DECRA application for research in these discipline areas at QUT, contact:

> Professor Terry Flew, t.flew at qut.edu.au
> Professor Brian McNair, b.mcnair at qut.edu.au
