In 2017, the Charter Hall Group (property developers of Raine Square) announced their partnership with the Raine Medical Research Foundation as their charity of choice, undertaking a corporate commitment to help support the Foundation’s future funding of medical research.
The Charter Hall Visiting Postdoctoral Scholar Award is intended to facilitate the visit of a high-achieving postdoctoral research scientist, who is in the early stages of their career, to an academic or medical research institution in Western Australia. The purpose of the Award is to bring new knowledge and/or techniques in medical research, facilitate the training of staff and students, initiate and undertake collaborative research, and advance medical research.
The duration of the Award shall be for a minimum three-week period, with an unspecified maximum period, normally up to twelve weeks.
The maximum contribution from Charter Hall for the Award shall be $5,000. A cash contribution from the host institution is required.
The Guidelines and Conditions governing the Award are subject to regular review by Charter Hall and the Raine Research Committee to ensure that they are relevant and clearly articulate the main principles for selection.
The Charter Hall Visiting Postdoctoral Scholar Award is open to all academic and medical research institutions in Western Australia, with specific eligibility criteria outlined in the Conditions.
