Nationwide call for Brain Cancer Research Fellow

Dec 17 2019

MHF Fellowship

The Mark Hughes Foundation is calling for an Early to Mid-Career Research Fellow, funded through Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI).

An Australia-wide call for an outstanding clinician or early-to-mid-career researcher to further their research into brain cancer has now opened.

Funds raised through the 2019 Beanie for Brain Cancer NRL campaign will be dedicated to supporting a three-year Fellowship and research support grant for an Australian-based researcher who is conducting excellent translational health or medical research in brain cancer. This Fellowship is in addition to the $1.2 million in Innovation Grants awarded in November to researchers from across the nation.

The successful applicant will be encouraged to collaborate with previous Mark Hughes Foundation Fellows and Grant recipients who are busy working on new treatment options for brain cancer to improve survival rates and wellbeing of people living with brain cancer.

Applications open December 17, 2019 and close February 17, 2020. The selection panel will include the Director of HMRI, selected members of the Mark Hughes Scientific Committee and External reviewers as required.
