Call for Expression of Interest: WAHTN Consumer and Community Involvement Research Fellowship

Dear Researchers

The Western Australian Health Translation Network (WAHTN) presents an opportunity to submit an Expression of Interest for the WAHTN Consumer and Community Involvement Research Fellowship.

The application period closes: 9.00am (AWST), Monday 11 September 2023

The Research Fellow will be required to undertake an independent evaluation of the WAHTN Consumer and Community Involvement Program (CCIProgram). The outcomes of the evaluation will inform a number of research streams in the MRFF grant funded ‘Consumer and Community Involvement Implementation Research for Impact’ (CCIRI) project, including the development of a national network for consumer and community involvement.

The WAHTN is offering one (1) Fellowship to current academic employees of WAHTN Partner Organisations for 12 months at 0.5FTE – 0.6FTE, providing protected time to support the development of future research leaders in consumer and community involvement.

This opportunity is a first for the WA research sector and will enable a researcher with a current WA academic appointment to directly focus on consumer involvement in research. The Fellowship will also contribute to individual capacity building together with the associated School, Institution and wider WA research sector.

Completed Expression of Interest Forms must be submitted via email to Deb Langridge, Head, CCIProgram by 9.00am, Monday 11 September 2023.

Please direct any enquiries to Deb Langridge on the email address listed above or phone 08 6151 1031.
