NOW OPEN: Clinician Research Fellowship Scheme (Round 2)

By NSW Regional Cancer Research Network (NSWRCRN) posted 01-02-2024 12:06 PM


The purpose of the NSW Regional Cancer Research Network's Clinician Research Fellowship scheme is to build translational cancer research by increasing research capacity and capability across the geographical area covered by the Central Coast, Hunter New England, Mid-North Coast and Northern NSW Local Health District boundaries.

This scheme is aimed at supporting regional clinical staff to undertake translational cancer research within their own institution and to contribute to the wider goals of the Network.


Funding Support Available 

The Clinician Research Fellowship award is a maximum of $100,000 for 12 months. Funding is permitted a maximum of 0.8 FTE salary costs of the Fellow (if required) and direct research costs (salary and/or non-salary) as outlined in a budget submission.

In addition, the Network will provide access to a Senior Research Partner (SRP) who can provide support in developing and implementing the research project and assist fellowship recipients in achieving their research goals and maximising the impact of their projects. Learn more about the professional research support options offered to our members within the Network.
