CSL is inviting Australian biomedical researchers to apply for one of two of the company's Centenary Fellowships worth $1.25 million over five years.
Applications open today for the 2019 Fellowships. They are offered to outstanding mid-career scientists seeking to undertake world-class medical research at an Australian academic institute.
The fellowships aim to boost the medical research community by supporting the development of Australian science.
“Australia is home to CSL’s global hub for early research and translation medicine and we are committed to helping grow the quality and quantity of Australian research and our biotech ecosystem generally,” said Professor Andrew Cuthbertson AO, CSL chief scientific officer and director of R&D.
“These fellowships are long term, high value, and mid-career. I am confident that the recipients of the CSL Centenary Fellowships will go on to become some of Australia’s most eminent scientists and will lead the next generation of Australian scientific endeavour” said Professor Cuthbertson.
The winners of the 2019 CSL Centenary Fellowships will be announced on 11 October 2018 at the annual dinner of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences.
