Posted on 17 November 2021 (Permalink)

Are you a clinician interested in translational research? Would you like to undertake a PhD or MD but need the skills and experience to make the first step? Do you have an idea for a research project but need funding to develop an application for a competitive fellowship?

The Birmingham Health Partners are offering a fellowship scheme designed to provide the launch pad for a clinician interested in translational research.

These one year fellowships are funded through the kind support of Metchley Park Medical Society and the University of Birmingham.

During the fellowship, applicants are expected to undertake the necessary pilot and preparatory work required to apply to research funding bodies for a competitive clinical doctoral training fellowship for a further two or three years protected research time to allow the successful completion of the project, acquisition of an MD or PhD and progression towards a clinical academic career.

What will the fellowship offer?

· The fellowships will provide one year’s salary cost and must be undertaken as primary role, not undertaken alongside current activities.

· A consumables/training bursary of up to £5k provided by the UoB IAT Programme

· Successful completion of one year’s research will result in the award of a Masters by Research qualification

·  As an employee, you will have full access to the University of Birmingham (UoB) education facilities
