Cancer Australia calls for expressions of interest for consumers to participate in research grant reviews
Cancer Australia is currently seeking expressions of interest from consumers to participate in reviewing research project grant applications as part of their Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme. This is an innovative, competitive, annual cancer research projects grant funding scheme, conducted by Cancer Australia in partnership with other funders of cancer research.
Cancer Australia and its funding partners value the involvement of people affected by cancer in all aspects of the scheme, including the review of research grant applications.
This is an open, national call for Expression-of-Interest from people interested in being part of Grant Review Committees for the scheme.
- Experience in the review of research grants is desirable; however, these skills are not essential because Cancer Australia will provide the appropriate training.
- Training will be undertaken over two days in Cancer Australia’s Sydney and Melbourne offices in August/September 2022.
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, individuals from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and male consumers are encouraged to apply.
The Expression-of-Interest form and background information is available on the Cancer Australia website at: https://www.canceraustralia.gov.au/research/priority-driven-research/consumers-and-grant-review-committees
