Clinician Research Fellowships
Applications are invited for the Clinician Research Fellowships program.
The program is an initiative of the Department of Health in partnership with the Raine Medical Research Foundation.
The program is designed to encourage clinicians employed by Health Service Providers to develop their research capability, while continuing some clinical duties. The program also facilitates high quality research that will ultimately provide better healthcare outcomes. The research must be undertaken in WA and be of direct relevance to the WA health system.
The program is open to eligible clinicians:
· working in healthcare disciplines including allied health and health sciences, dental, medical, nursing and midwifery professions;
· who are either early or mid-career researchers; and
· who have minimal or no paid research time.
Fellowship funding will provide salary support for research duties up to 0.5 FTE, as well as contribute to minor research costs. The duration of each Fellowship can be up to three years, depending on the extent of the research proposal. During the term of the Fellowship, clinical duties in a Health Service Provider institution must be maintained at a minimum of 0.3 FTE.
The application period closes at 1.00pm on Thursday 28 March 2019.
