2019 EMCRA Collaborative Award - CLOSING DATE EXTENDED

*Need a bit more time to find a collaborator or refine your application? You've got it. The deadline for applications is now extended to Monday July 8, 2019.*

We’re pleased to invite applications for the 2019 EMCRA (Early-Mid Career Researchers Association) Collaborative Award. This seed funding was established to promote collaboration between level A & B postdocs in the School of Biomedical Sciences and help postdocs gain research independence ahead of larger funding schemes. Each application is required to have two or three postdocs from at least two different departments in the School, on a project of their own devising. The total amount of funding available is $60k and awarded funds are estimated to be $10-20k per funded project. A report on outcomes from the 2017 award is available here. In 2018 we funded four projects from 19 applications.
