Research Advisory Committee seeks new members

The Stroke Foundation is seeking to appoint new members to its Research Advisory Committee. The Research Advisory Committee is a Board subcommittee that advises on:

  • Strategy underpinning our research program.
  • Stroke Foundation’s research grant funding.
  • Requests for Stroke Foundation participation or endorsement of external research programs and projects, including partnership grants.
  • Other activities arising from the implementation of the program.

The Research Advisory Committee is composed of experienced researchers with an established track record in research on stroke and/or related fields, along with one consumer and one carer representative.

The Committee is seeking to expand and appoint new members with a diverse range of skills and experience in stroke research including, but not limited to:

  • Neurointerventions
  • Indigenous health research
  • Expertise in stroke research addressing cultural and linguistic diversity
  • Research methods, i.e. implementation science, knowledge translation, translational research
  • Transitional stroke care

The Stroke Foundation embraces diversity and welcomes expressions of interest from qualified stroke researchers based across Australia and from all cultural backgrounds.

The Committee meets approximately five (5) times per year by videoconference, with occasional requests to comment on documents between meetings. Positions on the Research Advisory Committee are honorary.

How to apply

Expressions of interest are invited for the Committee and must be received by 5pm, Monday 12 April 2021. To apply, please send copy of your CV, as well as a covering letter outlining the skills you would bring to the Committee, to research@strokefoundation.org.au.

The Stroke Foundation is ambitious and determined to continue to improve the state of stroke. This is a fantastic opportunity to work with Australia’s only national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to stroke and play a vital role at the start of the research pipeline.


For any queries please contact Stroke Foundation’s Research Administration & Compliance Officer, Michelle Adamson via email research@strokefoundation.org.au or phone 03 9918 7215.
