The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) in partnership with the Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) for the Department of Health has now launched round 3 of the NIHR/CSO Healthcare Science Research Fellowship Competition. The scheme supports the development of healthcare science research capacity and capability building, by providing funding to undertake research for patient benefit.
The Fellowships will support members of the NHS healthcare science workforce who already have some research experience and wish to bridge clinical or service careers and research.
The two award levels are:
Doctoral: funding for individual doctoral level research and to undertake a PhD
Post-Doctoral: funding for individual postdoctoral research projects
Fellowships must be undertaken with the support of the relevant NHS line-manager and an appropriate academic partner. The research proposed must be of direct relevance to the NHS with the potential to improve service or clinical outcome.
Applications are invited from individuals working in England from one of the three main Healthcare Scientist areas:
Physics and Engineering.
