Heart Foundation: 2012 Douglas Senior Fellowship in Heart Health (Prevention)
Heart Foundation Senior Fellowships have been awarded since 1983 to support New Zealand graduates who have trained as cardiologists or scientists working in the field of cardiovascular research. This Senior Fellowship will be awarded in the area of preventive heart health research to work in association with the newly established Chair in Heart Health, in the University of Auckland. The Fellowship is tenable for 3 years.
Candidates must possess an appropriate postgraduate degree or diploma and may undertake work for a higher degree such as a PhD or MD. The Fellowship must be taken up within 12 months of the award. Other conditions applying to the Senior Fellowship and other Heart Foundation awards are outlined in the publication, “A Guide to Applicants for Research and Other Grants”.
SALARY AND ALLOWANCES
The initial salary level will be determined by the Scientific Advisory Group in conjunction with the Host Institution according to the qualifications and seniority of the Fellow and will normally maintain parity with appropriate rates paid by Universities and the Health Research Council.
The Foundation may provide an initial Grant-in-Aid of up to $1,500 to enable research work to commence. In subsequent years, Senior Fellows may apply for working expenses not exceeding $1,000 annually with no single item to exceed $500.
Further research funding will require an application for project grant funds from the Foundation. Funding for conference expenses must be applied for separately.
