New OpportunitiesCRI Irvington Fellowship from the Cancer Research Institute

CRI logoThe Cancer Research Institute (CRI) Irvington Fellowship is currently open. The aim of the Fellowship is to further career development and support laboratory research for promising young scientists working under the mentorship of leading immunologists.

The CRI provides funding to ensure that the most promising postdoctoral scientists receive the critical financial support and continued career training needed to pursue their lifesaving work.

The CRI recognises that getting to the next great breakthrough in cancer treatment will require continued investment in fundamental research and training. CRI therefore invites postdoctoral fellows working in both fundamental immunology and tumor immunology to apply for funding.

In recent years, significant advances in immunotherapy have yielded major breakthroughs in cancer treatment. The Institute is seeking hypothesis-driven, mechanistic studies in both immunology and tumor immunology that aim to directly impact our understanding of the immune system’s role in cancer.

Funding is available for USD $175,500 over three years, and the Flinders internal deadline for a completed final draft application is 17 September 2019. For application advice and assistance, contact Gareth Rees, Senior Research Grants Officer (NHMRC and Health).

New OpportunitiesCancer Research Institute Clinic and Laboratory Integration Program requesting letters of intent

Cancer Research Institute

The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) funds research aimed at furthering the development of immunological approaches to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer.

The Institute's mission is to bring effective immune system-based therapies to cancer patients sooner.

The development of new and effective cancer treatment requires the translation of basic laboratory discoveries into novel therapies that can be tested in patients. This area of translational research—where laboratory findings move into clinical testing, and where questions from clinical studies are brought back into the lab—is critical to bringing new and better immunotherapies to patients.

To this end, CRI offers its Clinic and Laboratory Integration Program (CLIP) Grants to qualified scientists who are working to explore clinically relevant questions aimed at improving the effectiveness of cancer immunotherapies. The program supports basic, pre-clinical, and translational research that can be directly applied to optimising cancer immunotherapy in the clinic.

Candidates for a CLIP Grant must hold a faculty appointment as a tenure-track assistant professor (or higher rank) at the time of award activation.

Letters of Intent are due 1 November 2019. The Flinders Internal closing date is 18 October 2019 for a completed final draft application. For application advice and information, please contact Gareth Rees, Senior Research Grants Officer (NHMRC and Health). Selected applicants will be invited to submit a full research proposal with a submission deadline of February 15, 2020.

The CRI established CLIP to support investigators who are studying critical topics at the intersection of laboratory and clinical research. CLIP grants provide up to $200,000 (USD) over a two-year period.

For more information, please visit the CRI website.

New Opportunities2019 Australian Survey of Social Attitudes - the opportunity to include a question

ACSPRI banner

The first wave of data collection for The Australian Survey of Social Attitudes (AuSSA) is almost complete. There is now an opportunity to contribute questions to the second and subsequent waves by sponsoring a question, or questions, relevant to this year's theme of "Social Inequality".

The proposed questions to be included in the second wave of the 2019 survey must be confirmed by 19 July 2019. Data collection will begin for the second wave in August.

For more information about the 2019 survey visit: https://www.acspri.org.au/aussa/2019.

AuSSA is run as an annual postal survey using a nationally representative sample (drawn from the Australian Electoral Roll) of at least 1200 adult Australians in total, sampled at four periods over the year: May, August and November 2019 and February 2020. Flinders Researchers may partner with ACSPRI as sponsors of AuSSA entitling them to include additional questions. The fee will be $1,000 (exc GST) per question (i.e. per 'tick') for the full sample of 1200, or $400 to be included in any one of the 4 sub-samples. Please note: Larger modules of questions will receive a significant discount to this rate.

AuSSA is an important source of data for the scientific study of the social attitudes, beliefs and opinions of Australians, how they change over time, and how they compare with other societies.

If researchers are interested in this opportunity or wish to find out more about it then they should contact ACSPRI via email at surveys@acspri.org.au.
