A Visiting Fellowship Scheme of the Telethon Kids Cancer Centre
The Ethan Davies Fellowship was established by Shannon and Christie-Lee Davies in recognition of their son Ethan, who is a survivor of paediatric ependymoma. The Fellowship aims to enhance the research strategy of the Telethon Kids Cancer Centre by providing support for "inbound" and "outbound" visiting fellows to undertake collaborative research for a period of four to eight weeks that is directly or indirectly relevant to paediatric brain cancer. Fellowship recipients are asked to use these opportunities in part to establish collaborative links with paediatric ependymoma researchers worldwide for the benefit of the Telethon Kids Cancer Centre and the international cancer research community.
Scientists from the Telethon Kids Cancer Centre who wish to undertake a body of work for four to eight weeks within renowned research centres/facilities outside of Western Australia.
All researchers within the Centre who are involved in research directly or indirectly relevant to paediatric brain cancer are eligible to apply.
Preference will be given to applicants who intend to undertake a program of work specifically relevant to paediatric ependymoma.
Applicants who are not involved specifically in this research field but do intend to spend the Fellowship period at an institution where research into paediatric ependymoma is conducted are eligible to apply.
Researchers from outside Western Australia who wish to spend dedicated time at the Institute for a period of four to eight weeks in collaboration with the Telethon Kids Cancer Centre are eligible.
Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate a path to collaboration with the Telethon Kids Cancer Centre.
Candidates will be identified by the Telethon Kids Cancer Centre as being excellent scientific collaborators and will be invited to apply for an inbound Fellowship.
Fellowship recipients will receive up to AUD $25,000 for a period of no less than four weeks and not more than eight weeks.
