Applications are now open for two awards that were established last year for female researchers in quantitative biomedical science:
- Georgina Sweet Award for Women in Quantitative Biomedical Science: In 2017 up to three awards of $25,000 will be made to female researchers who demonstrate excellence in the area of quantitative biomedical science*. Applicants would normally have completed their PhD more than 7 and less than 15 years ago. The closing date for applications for this year’s awards is 31 May 2017.
- Georgina Sweet Travel Support for a Female Keynote Speaker in Quantitative Biomedical Science: Up to three awards of $3,000 are available each year to support attendance of a female keynote speaker at an Australian quantitative biomedical science* conference. Applications are open at any time until awards have been allocated for the year.
*Definition: Quantitative Biomedical Science is biological/biomedical research that employs a quantitative approach, particularly in areas such as computational biology, biophysics, bioinformatics, biochemistry, genomics, structural biology, cell biology etc.
Both awards were created as part of Professor Leann Tilley’s (UniMelb) Laureate Fellowship commitment to foster, support and promote female researchers in quantitative biomedical sciences. Applications are open to researchers within Australia . For more information, guidelines and how to apply please visit:
