About the Fellowships

Candidates will be expected to undertake a research project within one of the BRC’s Research Themes. To facilitate training in Translational Medicine, trainees will have dual supervision by one clinician/clinician scientist and one scientists/researcher. It is anticipated that during the one year period of the Fellowship, successful candidates will be expected to:

  • Complete core training modules in Translational and Experimental Medicine, relevant to their discipline,
  • Actively pursue their research project,
  • Prepare a research fellowship application for submission to an external funding body, such as a Research Council, Charity or NIHR, to support a further period of research and, where relevant, use this funding to support a three year PhD programme.
  • Prepare scientific/research data to be presented at internal and external meetings in relation to the programme of research where relevant.
  • Actively participate in research and BRC related meetings and Public engagement activities as appropriate. Successful candidates will become members of the BRC Faculty of Translational Medicine. Trainees will have access to core facilities, bioinformatics and training support via the BRC resource centre.  Laboratory projects will be based in the laboratories and clinical areas within the Trust and College. This fellowship is open to EU and Home students only.
