On behalf of Professor Leann Tilley, ARC Georgina Sweet Laureate Fellow and Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the Bio21 Molecular Science and Biotechnology Institute, The University of Melbourne, we are pleased to advise that two new awards have been established this year for female researchers in quantitative biomedical science:
- Georgina Sweet Award for Women in Quantitative Biomedical Science: Up to two awards of $25,000 will be made each year to female researchers who demonstrate excellence in the area of quantitative biomedical science. Closing date for applications for this year’s awards is 31 July 2016.
- Georgina Sweet Travel Support for a Female Keynote Speaker in Quantitative Biomedical Science: Up to three awards of $3,000 are available each year to support attendance of a female keynote speaker at an Australian quantitative biomedical science conference. Applications are open at any time until awards have been allocated for the year.
Both awards have been created as part of Professor Tilley’s Laureate Fellowship commitment to foster, support and promote female researchers in quantitative biomedical sciences. Applications are open to researchers within Australia.
Application guidelines and forms for both awards are available at http://mdhs.unimelb.edu.au/
