CSL $25 Million Centenary Fellowship Program
CSL have announced the establishment of a new flagship $25 million fellowship program for early stage and translational research in Australia.
The CSL Centenary Fellowships are competitively-selected grants offered to mid-career (minimum 4 years post-doctoral) medical researchers. Two individual fellowships are to be awarded each calendar year. The total value of each award is $AUD 1.25 million, which is paid in annual instalments of $AUD 250,000 to the fellow’s employing university or medical research institute.
The fellowship provides for a full-time salary plus associated research costs. The breakdown is to be determined by the Fellow, in conjunction with the employing institution at the commencement of the Fellowship.
The fellowships are to be primarily awarded for early stage and translational research with a focus on rare and serious diseases, immunology, and inflammation. In any given year, at the call of applications, a specific research area may be indicated as a preference for that year’s awards.
Candidates must be Australian citizens (or permanent residents) with minimum tertiary qualifications of PhD level and at least four years post-doctoral work experience. Candidates do not need to be currently living or working in Australia at the time of application, but if successful they must undertake their research at an Australia academic institution. Applications will be judged on the basis of merit and excellence in competition with other applications.
Applications will be assessed on relevant skills and professional record, benefits the fellowship will provide to the individual, benefits the fellowship will provide to Australian biomedical research and alignment to the Fellowship’s stated research priorities.
The CSL Centenary Fellowships are overseen by a Selection Committee, comprising independent members (including the Chairman) and CSL representatives.
