New funding for senior fellowship to fill career gap

  • 19 Dec 2017

To mark the Auckland Medical Research Foundation’s (AMRF) 60th anniversary and the University of Auckland’s Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences (FMHS) 50th anniversary the AMRF have established a $2.5 million endowed fellowship to support the development of early career researchers.

The AMRF Senior Research Fellowship is the most prestigious fellowship offered by the AMRF in partnership with FMHS, and will support a top postdoctoral scientist for up to five years. The recipient will be someone who is capable of independent research activity, and who truly exhibits all the leadership attributes required for outstanding medical and health research.

Applications will be assessed by a panel which will include faculty and donor representatives. Applicants must identify a current tenured member of faculty to act as a mentor, and should contact a prospective faculty mentor to seek the required support.
