A Research Fellowship is a five year fellowship supporting leading health and medical researchers in full-time research. The objective of the scheme is to foster an intellectual environment which supports and builds the capacity of Australian research for the future and in so doing, creates knowledge through investment in research which improves health and thus contributes to Australia's prosperity.

Research Fellowships are prestigious and highly competitive awards for high performing researchers. Recipients of Research Fellowships are generally in the top 10% of their field and are viewed as ‘pushing the boundaries’ of research.

Please be aware of key changes to the 2017 Research Fellowships Funding Rules for funding commencing in 2018, including removal of the requirement for professors to apply at PRF or SPRF levels and provide justification if applying at SRF levels.

Please refer to the Research Fellowships section of the NHMRC website for further information.
