Are you an early- and mid-career researcher working in on the field of synthetic biology? Are you interested to present your research at the Synthetic Biology Australasia (SBA) 2019 conference?

The Theo Murphy Initiative (Australia) through the Australian Academy of Science is offering a number of mobility grants to support a diverse range of early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) to attend the SBA 2019 conference.

The mobility grants are designed to offset the expenses associated with attending SBA 2019 for those EMCRs who may not be able to attend without support and/or those from demographics traditionally underrepresented in research.

The grants can be used to cover costs associated with attendance to the event, such as registration fees, caring responsibilities, travel, accommodation and other support required to facilitate attendance.

SBA 2019 will run from 14 Р16 October 2019 at Customs House in Brisbane and will offer academic and industry researchers working in synthetic biology the opportunity to come together and present their current research and share ideas and findings on the future of one of the fastest growing areas of modern science.

Who can apply?

We encourage applications from carers, persons with disabilities, women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and those from regional Australia. Grants are restricted to EMCRs residing in Australia.

Applications close on 9 am AEST on Monday 29 July.
