Early Career Researcher & New Staff Grants Scheme
The University of Sydney Medical School's Early Career Research/New Staff grants scheme will be offered for funding in 2013.
Further information regarding the 2013 scheme will be posted in the coming months
In line with its commitment to focus resources on the support of early career researchers and new staff members, Sydney Medical School is calling for applications for research grants of up to $25,000 for one year from eligible early career researchers or staff who are new to the Sydney Medical School. These grants are intended to be investments in people and pilot projects that are likely to lead to major funding returns.
Early career researchers are considered to be those who were awarded their PhD no more than 7 years ago and hold an academic appointment up to and including Level B.
To ensure that you receive communications targeted to ECRs please login to the Research Profiles Management database, under Profile Page select Themes/Keywords/Approaches and select "yes" for Early Career Researcher.
New staff are researchers holding positions of Level C and below who have been employed by the University of Sydney for less than 2 years at the closing date for applications.
These grants are directed explicitly to these 2 groups of researchers rather than established researchers and those with existing grant funding.
