Call for Applications: Implementation Science Fellowships 2021 and Translation Fellowships 2021

Applications are invited for the following Future Health Research and Innovation Fund programs:

Implementation Science Fellowships 2021
Implementation science seeks to understand the system-level facilitators and barriers to implementing evidence into practice and identify evidence-based approaches to promote translation.  The Implementation Science Fellowships program seeks to identify potential pathways and strategies, using implementation science, for the successful implementation of research findings into policy and practice.

Translation Fellowships 2021
The Translation Fellowships program seeks to support translational research to increase translational research expertise and capacity in WA and facilitate the translation of research findings into policy and/or practice.

These Fellowships will support high-quality fellows and research programs that address a contemporary challenge or need faced by the WA public health system, through collaboration and partnership with WA Health Service Providers, in the following two streams:

  • Aboriginal health issues
  • Country and regional WA health issues.

One Implementation Science Fellowship and one Translation Fellowship will be made available in each of the above streams. The value of each Fellowship is $200,000 per annum for three years, which may be used for salary and research costs. These programs are funded by the Future Health Research and Innovation (FHRI) Fund.

The application period for each program closes 1:00pm, Tuesday 31 August 2021.
