Expression of Interest: Joining the FSANZ Fellows Program

The FSANZ fellowship is a network of distinguished scientists from Australia, New Zealand and other countries. Fellows are experts in areas relevant to food regulation and share their knowledge to bring about improvements in community health and safety, and informed choices about food.

Fellows participate in a three-year program that promotes close collaborative relationships between FSANZ staff, the Fellows, and their affiliated institutions. We draw on the expertise of our Fellows to get high calibre and independent advice.

The Program benefits FSANZ, Fellows, and their home institutions, by developing and maintaining academic links and networks and proactively sharing knowledge relevant to food regulation.

When selecting a Fellow, FSANZ looks for expertise across a range of scientific and academic disciplines relevant to FSANZ's work, such as:

  • microbiology and food safety
  • human nutrition and public health
  • regulatory and food toxicology
  • agricultural and food biotechnology
  • dietary exposure assessment and modelling
  • data science, analytics and visualisation
  • food technology and chemistry
  • social science and economics
  • epidemiology and biostatistics
  • science communication and engagement

FSANZ is looking for Fellows from diverse backgrounds and disciplines. FSANZ is committed to diversity. We believe that knowledge, understanding and their application are advanced meaningfully when people from diverse backgrounds cultivate and express the full range of their capabilities.

Becoming a FSANZ Fellow is an excellent way for you to interact with FSANZ staff, meet other Fellows, and build professional Networks. Participating in the Program means proactively sharing knowledge relevant to food regulation, protecting community health and safety and enabling informed choices about food.

Travel costs for participation in events may be covered by FSANZ, but we do not remunerate Fellows (e.g., pay an annual fee, a sitting fee or the like) for the services or contribution they provide.

Lodge your CV and application (no more than 300 words), telling us how your skills, knowledge, experience, and qualifications make you a suitable FSANZ Fellow here.
