One of the primary goals of EMCRA is to promote research independence of the brilliant and talented postdoctoral researchers in the School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS). Once a year we open a call for the EMCRA Collaborative Award, a seed-funding grant available to level A and B postdocs in SBS, who must submit projects of their own devising, and are collaborating with another postdoc from a different SBS department.

This funding is intended to promote collaborations at the postdoctoral level in the School, and to help our postdocs gain research independence ahead of larger funding applications to the ARC and NHMRC. There is a total funding pool of $60k available, and awarded funds are estimated to be $10-20k per funded project. The first round of the EMCRA Collaborative Award in 2017 was a fantastic success with a grant success rate of 50%. Outcomes generated by the 2017 winners variously contributed to manuscripts in preparation and funding applications including a successful 2018 NHMRC Project Grant (New Investigator) and facilitated international collaborations including a UoM Dyason Fellowship.

Winners of the 2018 round of the Award were announced in July 2018. Please click here for the announcement.
