11 May 2020
South West NIHR/HEE Integrated Clinical Academic Fellowship Awards are for healthcare professionals, other than medics and dentists providing health and/or care services for at least 50% of their current role. The purpose of the funding programme is to increase research capacity to improve health and healthcare, by developing people with the potential and aspiration to become leading clinical academics and independent researchers in the future. There are three levels of awards available to nurses, midwives, AHPs and other non-medical healthcare professionals. There is funding available for Internships, Pre-doctoral and Post-doctoral bridging awards and further details about each award is available in the documents.
The Internship award offers an introduction to aspects of clinical research through gaining research experience by observing/visiting/working in a research environment and undertaking study in research in preparation for applying for a Pre-doctoral Clinical Academic Fellowship (PCAF).
The Pre-doctoral award is for those who want to undertake education and training tailored to suit their specific clinical academic needs and aspirations and to develop a doctoral fellowship.
The Post-doctoral award is for those who have been awarded their doctorate to complete an individualised and structured period of training and development to support a post-doctoral fellowship.
The closing date for applications for all awards is Midday on 1st July 2020. Please contact Mary Cramp if you are based in the ARC West region and are interested in applying.
