Dementia Australia: 2021 Dementia Grants Program Post-doctoral Fellowship

The Dementia Australia Research Foundation is pleased to announce the following grant round supporting talented new and early career researchers.

Funding & duration

Up to 4 Post-doctoral Fellowships for new and early-career researchers. The 3-year award includes salary (up to $110,000 pa) and research expenses ($75,000).


  • At the time of acceptance and for the duration of a grant, the Applicant (Chief
    Investigator (CI)) must be an Australian or New Zealand citizen, or a permanent resident
    of Australia. All applicants must provide evidence to their host institution to support this
    criterion. Host institutions are responsible for certifying and ensuring that these
    requirements are met. The Dementia Australia Research Foundation may request further
    information in relation to these requirements, including evidence of residency and/or
    citizenship. Applicants who hold a temporary work visa are not eligible to apply.
  • The CI must not have more than four years post-PhD experience at the time of applying,
    adjusted for career interruptions / relative to opportunity i.e. the CI was awarded a PhD
    or equivalent (DPhil or M.D. by research) on or after 6 July 2017 or has submitted a PhD
    thesis for examination (the thesis must be passed prior to the proposed commencement
    date of the project).
  • The CI must identify an experienced dementia researcher as a supervisor, who is based
    at the same or a related institution (e.g. an affiliated hospital or research institute) as the
    CI. Under usual circumstances, the mentor would not have been the applicant’s PhD
  • The research must be conducted primarily in Australia and address the topic and scope
    of the funding round. However, the RAD Post-doctoral Fellowship may include a 6-month
    secondment that may be taken within or outside Australia.
  • The research must be approved by an authorised ethics committee, if applicable. Please
    note that grant payments may be withheld until ethics approval has been obtained.
