Snow fellowships target emerging global research leaders that show the potential to drive, manage and influence the next generation of health and medical innovation. The fellowship provides these emerging leaders the independence, funding and time to develop a bold research program, build their research team, and establish leadership experience.
The program supports ambitious research and high performing teams, and we believe that these are based on diversity, inclusivity and gender equality. Profiles of the first three Snow fellows are available on the Snow Medical website.
Funding & duration
Each Snow fellowship will be valued at approximately $8M over eight years for eligible early to mid-career researchers. Fellowship funding will be available to set up and operate a research laboratory, comprising salaries for the Snow fellow and post-doctoral researchers, PhD student scholarship top-ups, technical and laboratory management support, project funds and leadership development.
- Applicants must have a minimum tertiary qualification of a PhD from an Australian or international university
- At the expression of interest (EOI) closing date, applicants must have 5-10 years post-doctoral work experience OR 5-12 years for applicants that have other relevant post PhD experience, for example an MD/PhD. Career disruptions will also be taken into account.
- Applicants must be an Australian citizen, permanent resident or hold a relevant work visa at the time of commencement of the Fellowship. International applicants are encouraged.
Submission requirements & due date
- 17 July 2020: internal nomination deadline
- 23 September 2020: EOI submitted to Research Services

Each eligible organisation (including The University of Adelaide) is limited to submission of no more than two (2) expressions of interest (EOI). Potential applicants who believe they may be competitive should send a short email and CV detailing their research track record (maximum 2 pages), to firstname.lastname@example.org by the internal nomination deadline.
A selection process will follow involving the relevant Faculties (and DVCR if required), to select the most competitive two (2) nominees. We anticipate being able to advise the successful nominees by 31 July 2020 if they can proceed to developing an expression of interest for submission by the EOI deadline.
