These fellowships are intended to support outstanding predoctoral clinical candidates towards fully funded PhD programmes.
The Edinburgh BHF Centre of Research Excellence (REA3) will fund up to five clinical research fellows, offering mentorship and development support. Fellows are expected to prepare applications for at least one clinical research fellowship (e.g. MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship Pre Doctoral, BHF Clinical Research Training Fellowship) during their appointment.
Funding will include the applicant’s salary for up to 15 months and £10,000 for research consumables. Clinical research fellows will be appointed on Grade AMN2 of the clinical academic scale (£34,125 to £50,563). The post-holder will be offered an honorary clinical contract with Lothian Health in order to conduct clinical research and participate in clinical activities and training.
The Clinical Research Fellowship Programme will recruit a number of candidate fellows across REA3 themes. Fellows will undertake a research project relevant to REA3 research.
