Guidelines and application forms available from 2 October
NCCRED has developed a Clinical Research Scholarship program to build the scope and capacity of research on emerging drugs across the drug and alcohol sector. This is a national program open to clinicians at all levels, anywhere in Australia.
In our inaugural year we selected three research scholars (fellows) from a competitive application process, informed by each scholar’s experience, interests and career aspirations.
NCCRED is opening TWO new competitive rounds which will give financial and research support allowing recipients to conduct a new research project (more details to follow). The rounds will have an express focus on the following areas:
Scholarships will be open to practicing clinicians in the alcohol and other drugs sector and targeted to allied health clinicians and nurses. We encourage you to contact us to discuss a potential project. We are open to all ideas.
Scholarships will be open to practicing Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander health professionals (clinicians, nurses, allied health workers) in the alcohol and other drugs sector.
Open 2 October 2020
Close 6 November 2020
Notification early December 2020
NCCRED has developed a multidisciplinary mentoring and training program.
In our inaugural year, 3 Research Fellows have been selected from a competitive application process, informed by the fellow’s experience, interest and career aspirations.
Fellows can be clinicians of any multidisciplinary background (e.g. Nursing, Allied Health, Medical), practicing in the Alcohol and Other Drugs sector.
The candidates are partnered with a senior clinician-researcher either chosen by the applicant (if there is a preferred established partnership) or in collaboration with NCCRED staff.
NCCRED have contributed to the Research Fellow’s salary in a 0.5 FTE “buy-back”, whereby they replace the candidate’s salary from their primary employment for the 1-year fellowship term.
This round of applications is now closed. But please sign up to our newsletter, or contact us for more information about our next round of fellowships, which will focus on nursing and indigenous health. All expressions of interest are welcome.
