The Lister Institute selects Research Prize Fellows by assessing written applications followed by interviewing short-listed candidates.
Written applications are submitted as copies of the form linked to below and must include both a supporting statement from Heads of Department (or equivalent).
Members of the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) score all applications to generate a long-list of candidates whose applications are then sent to national and international experts for a detailed review.
Short-listed candidates are then selected by SAC members based on their own assessments and the results of the expert reviews. The short-listed candidates, usually no more than 8-10, then make a brief presentation and are interviewed by the SAC.
Applications are normally submitted in September or October for possible interview in the following May, and commencement of the award in October. We also allow re-application provided a candidate remains within the eligibility criteria.
