The CREATE PhD Scholarships in Pulmonary Fibrosis (PF) will support research into pulmonary fibrosis in Australia
Relevant domains of research inquiry include any form of clinical, population, laboratory, genetic or tissue-based research.
Students who are wishing to undertake a PhD or are currently enrolled in a PhD in Pulmonary Fibrosis Research, are invited to submit an application. The student must be a resident in Australia throughout the period of the research program.
The Centre of Research Excellence in Pulmonary Fibrosis (the CRE-PF) will allocate a total of two grants, each of $28,000, for the PhD Scholarships. These scholarships will either fund a stipend for one year for a full-time student or may be extended over a second year, should the student be able to secure matching funds to permit extension of the period via their University or Research Institute. Extension of the funding in order to extend the value of the research investment by Lung Foundation Australia by securing matching funding from the host institution is encouraged and will be regarded favourably.
These funds are to be used for the student stipend. Direct, indirect research costs and/or infrastructure costs do not form part of this grant and will not be covered by this funding.
The Research Committee of the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand (TSANZ) and two members of the Centre of Research Excellence in Pulmonary Fibrosis (the Committee) will assess all applications. Applications will be assessed using the following scoring system:
Research Supervisor and research environment
Importance and Quality of Project
