New Opportunities2020 Capstone Editing grants for Mid-Career Researchers
The Capstone Editing Grant for Mid-Career Researchers is currently open. Applications close on 24 February 2020.
The Grant provides up to A$5,000 of seed funding for one researcher per year to undertake an innovative research project. The expectation is that the research project will gather preliminary data and lead to the development of a research council funding application.
The grant can be used to cover any costs related to the research project, such as software or small lab equipment; domestic or overseas travel to learn new techniques or collaborate with colleagues; academic editing of the grant proposal; and data analysis.
Capstone Editing defines a mid-career researcher as someone who 1) holds a PhD and 2) graduated from their PhD within the past five to ten years (excluding career interruptions in relation to caring responsibilities).
Application support and advice for the grant is available from Mary Lyons, Senior Research Grants Officer (IGII), Research Development and Support.
