The Clinical PhD Research Fellowships are fixed term 3 year appointments offering training, mentoring and support to health professionals undertaking a PhD on the topic of multimorbidity. The posts will be based in the University of Glasgow, University of Dundee, University of Edinburgh, and University of St Andrews. Our aim is to develop the next generation of leaders in multimorbidity research who are both excellent in their core disciplines and skilled in working widely across disciplines and sectors. The core degree is a cohort‐based 3‐year PhD.
We include health care professionals from the following professions;
Medical applicants are welcome from ALL medical and surgical specialties (including General Practice) and will be doctors in training (holding a National Training Number). Applications are also welcome from General Practitioners who have completed their training (post-CCT) and are within the first 4 years post-CCT (full-time equivalent i.e. accounting for part-time working). Dentists with a NTN, currently in ST 1-5 are also eligible to apply. Doctors and dentists who are still in training will need to gain permission for time out of training from their Postgraduate Dean. Clinical work during the PhD will be limited to half to one day per week.
Applicants from other clinical disciplines must have completed all of their professional training and have a minimum of 2 years clinical training or clinical experience.
For all applicants, we will be looking for candidates with evidence of research activity before application (for example, as an undergraduate; by completion of a relevant Master’s degree or other post-graduate qualification; or by participating in research including writing papers) or other relevant activity (for example, working in policy or management). All applicants must be registered with their appropriate discipline specific professional body within the UK (e.g. General Medical Council, Nursing & Midwifery Council Nursing & Midwifery Council) and be licensed to practice in the UK.
Applicants would benefit from holding an intercalated BSc or research Masters degree or an equivalent postgraduate research related qualification in an area of clinical relevance.
During the term of the post, the successful candidate is expected to undertake a PhD.
All research and related activities, including grants, donations, clinical trials, contract research, consultancy and commercialisation are required to be managed through the University’s relevant processes (e.g. contractual and financial), in accordance with the University Court’s policies.
Relocation assistance will be provided where appropriate.
A clinical salary, which will be negotiated after appointment in line with the ‘UK clinical academic training in medicine and dentistry: principles and obligations’ document. for staff on a pay scale other than clinical salary will be commensurate with your existing NHS salary.
