Ref 1926/18 E G Whitlam Research Fellowship

This research fellowship has been established for the purpose of promoting research in Australian politics and public policy guided by the values that oriented Gough Whitlam’s social democratic vision and that demonstrate the contemporary relevance of this vision for 21st century Australia.

The E G Whitlam Research Fellow would have the opportunity to work on a project that has clear strategic relevance to the Whitlam Institute’s broader public policy program that focuses on issues relevant to a contemporary social democracy, in line with Whitlam’s vision for the Institute to pursue ‘the great and continuing work of building a more equal, open, tolerant and independent Australia’.  Find out more or apply here.
