2020 Health Delivery Research Career Development Award

All details about this funding opportunity (including the application and assessment processes) are available in the 2020 Health Delivery Research Investment Round Application Guidelines document (available below). Please note that in light of the impact of COVID-19 on the health sector in New Zealand, application closing dates now differ to those listed in the Application Guidelines.

The Health Delivery Research Career Development Award is a career development opportunity with a funded placement in a health delivery research team or health sector setting. It is designed as an alternative pathway into health delivery research aimed at attracting more people with relevant skills into this discipline.

Specifically, this grant provides development opportunities for health professionals (clinical or non-clinical) and academic health researchers with five years’ cumulative experience in a health sector or health delivery research setting, to undertake a funded placement (part-time or full-time) in a health delivery research team, health care or health delivery policy setting. The placement will involve the applicant leading or contributing to a research project or research related activity.

  • There are no additional overhead costs associated with the Health Delivery Research Career Development Award; however, $20,000 (pro rata based on FTE and duration) will be made available for the host for specific expenses related to the placement.
