2018 FMNHS Early Career Researcher (ECR) Publication Prize - APPLY NOW!!!!

The Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences (MNHS) is committed to developing Faculty-based Early Career Researcher (ECR) initiatives, to assist our ECRs in the development of their research careers.  In addition to the emphasis placed on a strong track record in research publications and competitive funding, there is also the requirement for ECRs to secure competitive Prizes & Awards.  In support of this, the Faculty Research Office offers the FMNHS ECR Publication Prize.

ECRs are invited to nominate one 2017 research publication for the 2018 FMNHS ECR Publication Prize [EPP 2018]. Six ECR Publication Prizes are awarded per year, with one prize allocated for each Faculty-based broad discipline:
  1. The Robert Porter Prize for Laboratory Based Sciences;
  2. The John McNeil Prize for Public Health Research;
  3. The Henry Krum Prize for Clinical Sciences;
  4. The Jenny Keating Prize for Nursing and Allied Health;
  5. Social and Educational Research; and
  6. The Jenny Redman Prize for Psychological Sciences.

Two Faculty prizes will also be awarded for the best publications from ECRs who hold an externally funded Fellowship. Applicants will be asked to nominate whether their publication should be assessed as:
  • Laboratory Sciences; or
  • Non-Laboratory Sciences.
Recipients of the ECR Publication Prize will each receive $1,000*, and a certificate signed by Professor Ross Coppel, Deputy Dean and Director of Research.

Recipients may also be invited to collect their award and/or present their research at a Faculty ECR event.

Nominees will be asked to indicate if they wish to be considered to present at School and Departmental seminar programs within the Faculty.

Applicants will be notified of the submission outcome in August 2018.

* Funds will be transferred to the recipient’s School/Department for use by the ECR in research-related activities (e.g. contributing to conference accommodation/travel expenses).
