All Postdoctoral Fellowships offered in Pacific health research are intended for the support of outstanding graduates who have recently completed a degree at doctoral level and who propose to conduct research in scientific fields of relevance to the HRC mission of “benefiting New Zealand through health research”. Their purpose is to provide support for up to four years for researchers to gain further experience in their chosen fields and for them to become established as an independent researcher. Where appropriate, the Fellowship could include a period of up to two years of training that is undertaken overseas. The HRC will provide a grant of up to $105,000 for research expenses associated with the research. The applicant must submit a detailed budget on the appropriate Excel budget form. The HRC will provide an annual allowance of up to $2,500 to enable the Fellow to travel relevant scientific meetings. Please note that in this instance, HRC will not provide any extra funding. The conference allowance should be claimed from the host institution. If a portion of this Fellowship is partly undertaken overseas, an adjustment for cost of living may be made. This adjustment will be indexed to a value of US$25,000 per annum. Please note the exact sum will be determined by, and vary in accordance with the exchange rate.
