The Health Research Council of New Zealand (HRC) and the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) have established the Māori Mental Health Research Emerging Leader Fellowship to support high-quality research and Māori health research capacity in Aotearoa, New Zealand. The Fellowship is intended to focus on the development of Māori mental health research knowledge, with a specific emphasis on equity and Māori health research processes that supports improving Māori mental health and the social care delivery system.
Through this Request for Proposals (RFP), the HRC and MSD (‘the funding partners’) are seeking to support an outstanding early/mid-career researcher whose proven track record demonstrates that they are an emerging leader in the field of Māori mental health and who propose to conduct research that will address the following two components:
• Evidence of effective early intervention practice, that MSD and/or others in the social sector can implement, to respond to people who develop health conditions or disability while in work, with a goal of preventing a loss of connection to the labour market and to promote overall wellbeing; and
• An implementation framework that MSD and/or others can use to trial and evaluate new approaches that assist people to remain connected to work when managing health conditions or disability.
Funding of up to $300,000 (exclusive of GST) for salary, salary associated costs and research expenses is offered. The duration of the Fellowship is up to two years.
Applications to this RFP will be submitted via a one-stage process. Applicants are firstly required to submit a Registration via HRC Gateway (the HRC’s online application system). Registrations are due by 1pm, Tuesday 23 July 2019. The full application will need to be submitted via HRC Gateway by 1pm, Tuesday 20 August 2019.
