NHMRC Early Career Fellowships
The NHMRC Early Career Fellowships scheme provides four-year Fellowships to early career researchers to assist them in their health and medical research training within Australia or overseas (where applicable).
The specific objectives of the scheme are to:
Early Career Fellowship packages are awarded for four years at the Training Support Package Level 1 with an additional $5,000 p.a. for maintenance while based in Australia.
If appropriate, clinical loadings (up to $15,000 p.a. for practicing medical practitioners, up to $7,500 p.a. for dental practitioners and ECF's who do not engage in clinical duties). Pro-rata rates apply for part-time research.
As the packages provided by the NHMRC are below the actual salary costs (including on-costs), Faculties and Departments must meet the salary gap between the award and the Macquarie salary scale.
The Faculties have their own approval and review processes for grants under this scheme. They may also have deadlines for submission of draft applications that are earlier than Research Services deadlines. Please ensure that you contact your Faculty, as early as possible, for information on process and deadlines. Faculty contacts:
