The aim of the Fellowship is to facilitate CF researchers learning new techniques and establishing research collaborations. The Fellowship will be offered to post graduate students nearing completion of their PhD and to recently graduated (up to 2 years) postdoctoral researchers.
The Ann Maree Bosch Career Fellowship will enable early career scientists to travel to a laboratory in an interstate or overseas institution such as a university or research establishment of international standing in the field of CF research.
The recipient of the Fellowship will be able to visit and/or conduct research at the institution and may also have the opportunity to attend an appropriate conference as part of the award.
The recipient of the Ann Maree Bosch Career Fellowship will be required to provide a report to CFA on their use of the award. In addition and where appropriate, the recipient will be asked to make a presentation at a CFA conference (held every 2 years) in Australia.
The maximum amount awarded under the Ann Maree Bosch Career Fellowship will be $10,000. The actual amount provided will be subject to approval of the applicant’s budget.
