New Staff Start-up Funding Scheme Guidelines

Start-up packages may be offered to new academic staff (exc. Teaching Focused) that have been appointed through a competitive recruitment process. Eligible staff will usually be appointed on a continuing or fixed-term contract of >=5 years. The packages are offered to facilitate capacity building and research engagement within the Faculty of Medicine. The aim of this Start-Up scheme is to assist supervisors with initial negotiations with preferred candidates and to assist new staff to:

  • Establish themselves as independent researchers; and
  • Provide start-up funding to facilitate research engagement and the development of competitive bids for external support.
