The Indigenous visiting research fellowships program provides funding support for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander researchers to undertake research at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute.
The fellowships support Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander researchers to leverage the expertise of an Institute laboratory and associated research infrastructure to advance their research and develop their scientific skills and experience. Fellows will be part of a workplace that is actively committed to inclusion and enabling all our people to flourish.
Funding & duration
Fellowships will be awarded for up to $300,000 over a two-year period ($150,000 p.a.) for a duration between three and twenty-four months.
In 2020 the Indigenous visiting research fellowship program will support up to two Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander researchers.
Applicants may be working on any aspect of biomedical science, and can apply to join any laboratory at the Institute.
Fellows can range from PhD students who have completed their confirmation of candidature, through to mid-career researchers. Clinicians with an interest in research are also welcome to apply. Researchers not currently employed/enrolled to study at the Institute will be given preference.
