The Talo Travel Grants provide an opportunity to the next generation of computational biologists to engage with the Australian and international scientific community and with industry partners to develop a broad knowledge of computational methods and processes through exchange and training. Visiting other research and industry centres outside the usual place of study/work is an enriching experience. Recipients will be able to develop new skills, learn different technologies, and meet multidisciplinary collaborators.
There are two types of travel grants:
- Grants (up to A$5,000) for Talo Interns studying bachelor and masters programs to fund exchange programs, short courses or visits to external computational biology research teams.
- Grants for PhD candidates and early-career researchers (up to five years post-PhD) to fund short-term (three to six month) research placements in industry or external academic institutions. Applicants must be engaged with the Talo Program, either as recipients or project supervisors. Award amounts are flexible, depending on visit duration and location.
How to apply
Applications will be assessed once per year. Call for applications will be announced shortly, depending on the opportunities for traveling in the context of the ongoing restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
