REDI Fellowship Program

REDI Fellowship Program - Applications CLOSED 27 July 2022

The REDI Fellowship Program can provide up to $250,000 per Fellow, per annum, for industry Fellowships giving Australian, international and/or multinational MTP companies the financial support to bring Australian academics, clinicians and MTP professionals in-house for up to twelve months to work on priority medical research projects.

The grant covers/contributes to salaries and on-costs (including superannuation) for the period of the REDI Fellowship. Additional costs, such as relocation costs, may be covered if there is a requirement to relocate.

To date, 32 Fellows have already been selected to work with leading Australian and international companies including Cochlear, Telix Pharmaceuticals, Leica Biosystems, Stryker, SpeeDx, Pharmaxis, Paige.AI and Synopsys.

Please review the REDI Fellowship Guidelines below for eligibility criteria and further details. 

A REDI Fellowship requires a sponsor (industry), a fellow (e.g. researcher, academic, clinician, tech transfer professional) and a specific research and development project focussing on human health outcomes. The application requires sponsor companies to have reached or surpassed the product (therapeutic, medical device, digital health) development inflection point and be able to provide high level support for the growth of the Fellow, with no minimum staff limit.

Eligible sponsors can select three types of Fellowships to apply for which need to be completed by 31 December 2023:
• One-year full time
• 6–12 months full time
• 6–12 months where the Fellow spends 50% of time working with the sponsor.

Applications for the REDI Fellowship Program CLOSED on 27 July 2022.
