In this 2 x 2-hour training, Prof. Amanda Salis will
share insider insights on writing successful applications for NHMRC Investigator Grants (formerly known as NHMRC fellowships), based on her personal experience of having won 5 NHMRC fellowships to fund her own research, as well as having directly helped 8 of her colleagues to win NHMRC fellowships (including 2 people who won NHMRC Investigator Grants in 2019).
While competition for NHMRC Investigator Grants is fierce (the overall success rate in 2019 was 13.2%), and while it’s clear that many outstanding applications will not be funded, this training will help you to be more visionary in your research plans moving forwards, and will help you to clearly demonstrate your vision in your application (consisting of your Grant Proposal and your application form in RGMS). This will not only make your application more thrilling for your reviewers to read, it will also help you to pin-point future research efforts that will be more likely to bring health benefits to the world.
Who is this training for?
Anyone from any institution who wants to optimize the writing of their NHMRC Investigator Grant application at any of the following levels: Emerging Leadership 1, Emerging Leadership 2, Leadership 1, or Leadership 2.
