CBRI EMCR Fellowships workshop, 2017

The Computational Biology Research Initiative (CBRI), a Hallmark initiative of the University, is hosting a series of professional development workshops in 2017 for early-mid career researchers in computational biology.

We invite all EMCRs in computational biology and related fields to our next CBRI EMCR Workshop, with a focus on NHMRC and ARC early-mid career fellowships

Are you in an interdisciplinary field?
Are you thinking of applying for a Fellowship?
Not sure which scheme to target?

Then this is the workshop for you!
