Whilst Malaria remains a prevalent global problem, collaboration within the research community is fundamental to future developments. The OzMalNet programme is a framework 7 opportunity for malaria researchers to undertake research, and to work and train in Australian labs. The programme is aimed at providing funding for PhD and early career post doctoral fellows from Europe, Africa & India as part of their current project, for a period of up to 3 months. With funding support from the European Commission, the EVIMalaR/OzEMalaR exchange links the 54 members of EVIMalaR with 34 top Australian labs, members of the Australian Society for Parasitology.
The OzMalNet programme is essential in facilitating and promoting interaction between colleagues, peers and potential research partners for future development and research in this field. In addition, it aims to communicate the scientific achievements of OzMalNet participants and create further professional development opportunities.
Funding covers any of the following projects:
• Exchanges to OzEMalaR laboratories and associated field sites for up to 3 months.
• malaria-related training courses
• to organise and host training workshops in Australia
• Grant writing retreats that promote collaborations between EVIMalaR and OzeMalaR participants
Applicants must be malaria researchers whose laboratory head is a Principal Investigator, either as a full or affiliate member of EVIMalaR.
Applicants must describe the purpose of the travel, together with a justification of the benefits to the individual and to EVIMalaR as a result of the exchange.
Applications to the OzMalNet Travel Award are accepted on an ongoing basis.
Please note it can take up to 12 weeks from your application being submitted, to being reviewed and awarded. Please leave ample time between submitting your application and your planned exchange.
