Cancer Council SA: The Peter Nelson Leukaemia Research Fellowship Fund 2018

The Peter Nelson Leukaemia Research Fellowship Fund was established to support mid-career researchers, in an accredited research department, to undertake research into the diagnosis, cause, or treatment of leukaemia, with the goal of finding a cure for this strain of cancer.

Funding & Duration

The funding scheme aims to provide financial support through a package of $100,000 per annum for three years for a full-time position, with the value of the award adjusted pro-rata.

Note: the scheme will only support leukaemia researchers who can bring matched funding, which is an essential component. Matched funding can be from multiple sources. In-kind support will not be considered.


Applications for the Peter Nelson Leukaemia Research Fellowship are invited from researchers involved in any aspect of leukaemia research.

The successful applicant for the Peter Nelson Leukaemia Research Fellowship will have up to ten years post-doctoral experience or equivalent, be involved in leukaemia research, have published in the scientific literature and be able to demonstrate support from the South Australian institution where the proposed research is to take place.
