Sydney Cardiovascular Fellowships 2018 now open

Awards and Achievements
The Heart Research Institute and the Charles Perkins Centre of the University of Sydney are seeking exceptional national and international early to mid-career researchers with the potential to become global leaders in cardiovascular research for the Sydney Cardiovascular Fellowships 2018.

These fellowships represent the most prestigious fellowships in Australia for cardiovascular researchers and are valued at $1,000,000 over a period of five years. For truly exceptional mid-career or later research leaders, an appropriately attractive package (up to $2,000,000 over five years) will be negotiated. The fellowships are open to Australian and international applicants.

It is expected that the successful applicant will be able to commence their Fellowship in 2018, based primarily within the Charles Perkins Centre research and education hub, University of Sydney. It is anticipated that the successful applicant will be able to establish an independent program of research that is complementary to existing research within the University of Sydney.
