The UKRI Innovation/Rutherford Fund Fellowships at HDR UK

The University of Manchester - Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health

The University of Manchester, on behalf of the MRC and HDR UK, is looking to recruit to two fellowships that will work at the centre of health data science research, focusing on one of the national priorities defined by the HDR UK programme:

  • Actionable Analytics
  • 21st Century Clinical Trials
  • Data-Driven Public Health
  • Precision Medicine.

The fellowships will provide three years of personal support (salary and research costs).  Fellows are expected to be 'rising stars' at the early to mid-career stage (non-clinical), in line with potential candidates for MRC Skills Development Fellowships/Career Development Awards. Fellowships are aimed at researchers and technology specialists outside of the traditional academic PI track.

  • Early career stage fellowships are aimed at post-doctoral candidates that have experience of delivering previous research projects with some evidence of outputs (eg publications).
  • Mid-career stage fellowships are aimed at those post-doctoral candidates wishing to make a transition into independence with some evidenced productivity across past appointments on an upwards trajectory.

Due to the funding requirements of the post, applicants must be available to commence the role no later than 15 February 2018.

Deadline for applications: 22nd December 2017
