Joining the prestigious ECAT-i programme (Edinburgh Clinical Academic Track – inclusive) involves undertaking a Wellcome Trust PhD for Health Professionals in a world-leading research centre at the University of Edinburgh, with combined clinical training/practice in association with NHS Education for Scotland & NHS Lothian.
ECAT-i is the University of Edinburgh’s exciting academic track for all medical and surgical specialties, including primary care professionals. The programme aims to build on the principles of research excellence & mentorship developed during the successful ECAT Wellcome Clinical PhD programme, with a strong emphasis on research inclusivity and a positive research culture.
We are seeking to recruit up to five outstanding health professionals for the August 2024 intake.
All vacancies are open to:
To maximise flexibility for individual trainees, two types of post are available: ECAT Clinical Lectureships (with combined clinical training or experience; Wellcome Trust PhD for Health Professionals; and mentorship) & ECAT PhD Fellowships (with Wellcome Trust PhD for Health Professionals & mentorship). Before beginning the 3-year PhD project, funding is provided for a preparatory period when selection of supervisors/planning of the PhD project are optimised with the support of the ECAT directors – 12 months for the former, 3 months for the latter (although this could be open to negotiation depending on personal circumstances). Following the PhD, there is funding for research training and clinical practice up to CCT + 6 months, or 2 years post-PhD as appropriate.
