Incomplete applications will not be accepted.

To ensure your application is complete and competitive, please read and attend to the following:

  • Research Supervisor
    You must make contact with an academic staff member and have an informal agreement from that person to supervise you if successful. Email evidence of the supervisor’s agreement should be included with your application. Applicants who do not have a supervisor at the time of application will not be considered for an AGRTPS/FIPRS.
  • Publications
    You must include evidence that you have published; you may include up to five of your publications with your application.
    Each publication must be accompanied by a completed cover sheet; publications without coversheets will not be considered. Publications will be used to judge the quality of previous research in the area that you intend to study at Flinders University. Applicants with more than five publications should consult with their Flinders University supervisor and select the top five. Explain briefly why these five were chosen. Do not provide more than five publications. Additional publications may be noted on your CV or in a separate list. Coversheets are not required for publications listed on the CV but not included among the top five.

Typically, only publications in English should be included among the top five. Publications in other languages will be accepted only if the nature of the publication (for example, a report to a government agency) dictates that another language is most appropriate.

Publications must not be more than 5 years old

Please note, due to the highly competitive nature of the AGRTPS, applicants who have not published are unlikely to be competitive.
