Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow

University of Auckland, New Zealand - Faculty of Medical & Health Sciences

Auckland Medical Research Foundation Senior Research Fellowship

The Auckland Medical Research Foundation (AMRF) was founded in 1955 to provide financial support for medical research. The Foundation recognised the vital need for scientific work being undertaken alongside the heart of the medical community, and took a leading role in the establishment of a Medical School in the University of Auckland.

AMRF are now the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences’ principal philanthropic supporter, and to mark the faculty’s 50th Anniversary in 2018 have established a $2.5 million endowed fellowship to support the development of early career researchers.

The AMRF Senior Research Fellowship is the faculty’s most prestigious award, and will support a top postdoctoral scientist for up to five years in an area of interest to the Trustees of the AMRF and the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences.

The AMRF Senior Research Fellowship will be awarded to a candidate who is capable of independent research activity, and who truly exhibits all the leadership attributes required for outstanding medical and health research.


We welcome applications from postdoctoral scientists in any discipline with a proven track record of relevant experience. Applications will be assessed by a panel which will include faculty and donor representatives.  Applicants must identify a current tenured member of faculty to act as a mentor, and should contact a prospective faculty mentor to seek the required support.

Applications are now open for this fellowship, until the closing date of Tuesday 30th January 2018. Prospective applicants should apply online, below, and contact Vickie Haake ( to request a supplemental form.
