Additional call for innovation fellowships now open

18 May

veski has opened an additional call for its prestigious innovation fellowships and is seeking applications from Australian expatriates and globally competitive individuals who are overseas looking to become a part of the Victorian science and innovation communities.

Since 2004, veski has awarded 16 veski innovation fellowships to scientists and researchers working across a range of basic, applied and clinical research fields from modern health issues such as cancer, dengue and obesity to innovative studies into nanotechnology and organic semiconductors.

With additional funding from the Victorian Government, veski is positioned to award additional fellowships in the next few years and bring increased numbers of scientists and researchers back to Victoria.

veski chief executive officer, Ms Julia L Page, said: “Our first call in 2013 attracted applications from individuals of the highest calibre working around the world, and this additional call allows more scientists and researchers to apply to return to Victoria”.

Applications are sought from globally competitive individuals in the fields of biotechnology, biomedical, advanced manufacturing, environmental technologies, or the enabling sciences and technologies.

Successful individuals may receive up to AUD$50,000 per annum for a maximum of three years. These funds must be matched with financial funding [cash] and in-kind contributions from a Victorian host organisation such as an academic or research institution.

Application details can be found under the fellowships section of the veski website and close on Friday, 28 June 2013.

For advice or further information regarding applications, please contact veski on +61 3 9635 5700 or fellowships @ veski.org.au.
