UNSW Medicine Investigator Grant Peer Review

The Faculty of Medicine and Research Strategy Office are supporting researchers to develop applications for the upcoming NHMRC Investigator Grant round. The Faculty will facilitate a process of internal peer review of applications by senior (Level D and E) academics. We anticipate two reviewers for each submitted application. Support will also be provided by the Research Strategy Office (RSO) in the form of information sessions and written information to assist with preparing applications. We recognise that some Schools, Centres and Institutes have processes in place to support internal review. Applicants may choose which internal initiative they will utilise to develop their applications.

All those who intend to apply to the Investigator Grant scheme are encouraged to be actively involved in this initiative. There is good evidence that a process of this nature is associated with improved success rates and higher value awards.
We will provide timelines and resources on this page, so please check back for updates.

Academic Women in UNSW Medicine

UNSW Medicine has a long and proud tradition of employing and promoting female academics across all of its schools and affiliated research institutes.

Initiative: The Apte Scholarship

The Apte Scholarship is offered to support academic women within UNSW Medicine who are about to or have recently completed a period of parental leave and are seeking to return to their career in either a full-time or part-time basis. The purpose of the scholarship is to provide eligible staff with relief from teaching and administration to write publications, grant applications and/or access research assistance. The successful applicant may access the funds for any legitimate University purpose including hiring research assistance, research equipment and providing relief from teaching and/or administrative duties.

The Apte Scholarship is named after inspiring female academic Professor Minoti Apte OAM. In 2015 Professor Apte was awarded the NSW Premier’s Woman of the Year Award for her contribution to the tertiary sector and medical research in the area of pancreatology. Professor Apte is also a long term member of the UNSW Medicine Women Employment Strategy Committee (WESC) member.
