This call for BRC Research Training Fellowships, is one of several training programmes funded by the NIHR and overseen by the BRC Training Cluster STEM.  Specifically, we seek to appoint up to 5 fellowships in totalto undertake one year full time of protected research training in areas closely aligned to Clinical research programmes and BRC focussed research clusters and their themes.  It is anticipated that during the period of the fellowship successful candidates will be expected to:

1) complete core training modules towards the award of an MRes,

2) actively pursue their research project and

3) begin preparation of a research fellowship application for submission to an external funding body, such as a Research Council, Charity or NIHR to support further training towards a PhD.

The scheme is open to allied healthcare professionals, nurses, midwives, and pharmacists from across the UK/EU (as defined by the UK National Institute of Health Researchhttp://www.nihrtcc.nhs.uk/cat/eligibility) We are particularly keen to identify those health professionals who have a clinical commitment which has, until now, not allowed them the protected time to develop their research careers. Previous research experience is desirable. Candidates should have:

  • Relevant professional qualification or degree (equivalent to first class or upper second)
  • Registration with relevant professional body
  • Eligibility and experience at a level appropriate for registering for a higher degree (e.g. MRes and PhD)
