Victorian Consortium for Health and Biomedical Researcher Development Program - Sponsorships open

Up to 10 VCCC sponsorships worth $ 2,000 each

The natural progression if you are successful as a researcher is to become head of your own research lab or group and stop spending time at the bench. You are no longer a scientist; you are a manager of scientists. The VCCC has partnered with Marlow Hampshire, a progressive and dynamic leadership development group, to provide a sponsored leadership opportunity for up to 10 talented researchers in 2019.

Program details:

The program has been designed specifically to assist the transition of researchers and current research managers into effective leaders of research teams within the culture of a Research Institute or Research Group. The scheme is targeted towards senior postdoctoral researchers and junior laboratory heads and is a 4 day program (2 x 2-day modules). 

The opportunity:

The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) is offering to support up to 10 individuals from the VCCC alliance to participate in this program in 2019.  Sponsorship support is valued at $ 2,000 for each successful candidate.

What do previous participants say?

I think this is a very valuable program in equipping researcher leaders with the skills and tools, they need to compete on the international stage

The program has far exceeded my expectations and will significantly enhance multiple aspects of my professional life – thank you very much

Should be mandatory for all mid‐career researchers.

Confirmed dates are:

Module 1: Monday 13 May – Tuesday 14 May 2019
