SCS Researchers - Joint Hudson-SCS Grant Review process for 2016: NHMRC and ARC grant applications

All researchers are invited to be part of the Joint Hudson-SCS Grant Review process, which reviews NHMRC and ARC grant applications.  Through this process you will receive advice on the strategic direction of your grant and identifying reviewers to assist with grantsmanship.  Please note that participation for SCS researchers in this peer review process is now compulsory.
Sessions to review early grant proposals have been shown to be particularly useful for new grant proposals and those that are to be substantially rewritten.  At each meeting applicants are asked to speak about their proposed grant for approximately 5 minutes, clearly addressing the selection criteria. This is then followed by 15 minutes of discussion and feedback.  All postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to attend.

To participate in this process, please send the following to

- By Monday 16 November, 2015 - No. of grants, proposed CIs, granting body and preferred Panel - This will be used to allocate meetings and spokespersons.

- By Monday 23 November, 2015 - Completed NHMRC or ARC proforma (attached) and track records for each CI.

Meetings to review Grant Proposals will run from 30 November to 18 December, 2015. You must be available to attend these meetings.
Note that the Ritchie Centre runs a separate review process.  Those going through this process do not have to participate in the above process but may choose to do so, particularly if their grant crosses over into themes other than reproduction.

Please do not hesitate to contact Jin Graham (857 22650) if you have any queries.
