CRADLE Fellowships

CRADLE Fellowships are currently closed for applications. Subscribe to our blog to stay up to date with the Fellowship scheme.


The objectives of the CRADLE Fellowship Scheme are to attract internal applicants to:

  • foster the development of relevant research expertise,
  • enhance CRADLE’s research capacity and performance, and
  • support excellent practice in assessment and digital learning at Deakin.

Fellows are given access to our facilities and researchers, and are financially supported to develop both their individual and faculty’s research profile. For example, the funding can be utilised for:

  • direct costs associated with research, such as salaries of research assistants,
  • research dissemination at national or international conferences, and
  • professional development, such as methodological training.


  • gaining worldwide recognition as being part of an international research centre in assessment in higher education,
  • interacting with eminent researchers from overseas, with opportunities for collective research partnerships, and
  • mentoring and financial support for research.


Applications are now closed, but subscribe to our blog to stay up to date with the Fellowship scheme.

CRADLE welcomes applications from postdoctoral researchers at every career stage, from early career to senior scholars. Applicants must be a current Deakin staff member and be on a continuing or fixed-term position at Deakin as an academic staff member with more than two years remaining on their contract. All applicants must be able to demonstrate the relevance of their proposed research to CRADLE’s current research activities and our current programs of research.

CRADLE Fellowships offer funding of $15,000 to support each Fellow’s collaborative research program for research activities, and in some instances, to buy out teaching time.
