2021 Emerging Leaders Program Applications Open
Following the successful first round in 2020, the Career Development Committee is delighted to announce the 2021 round of Hudson Institute Emerging Leaders Program.
This program is directed towards Early Career Researchers (ECRs) within 3-10 year post-PhD, who want to develop their profile and leadership skills. Unlike the first round, the 2021 call is not limited to ECRs who want to position themselves for future NHMRC/ARC fellowships.
The Emerging Leaders Program is run by the WALT institute (referred to as Supercharge Your Leadership program – see link for more details and costs $6000 per person covered by the Institute – a significant investment by the Institute to its future leaders.
This year, the program will run from the 27th September – 10th December including a 3-day face to face from 11th – 13th November 2021. The applicant needs to be able to commit time during this period to take full advantage of the program.
Five Emerging Leaders will be selected this year; given the limited space we are restricting the applications to three per centre – to ensure broad representation across the institute. Interested applicants should discuss with their group leader and centre head before submitting the application. Selection of the three centre candidates will be carried out by the Centre Heads, and the final selection of the Emerging Leaders by the Career Development Committee and the CEO.
