Elizabeth Blackwell Institute Global Health Fellow

University of Bristol - Research and Enterprise

Location: Bristol, Harare - Zimbabwe
Salary: From £32,398 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 11th December 2023
Closes: 16th January 2024
Job Ref: ACAD107308

The role

Applications from suitably qualified medical graduates are invited for 12 month biomedical/health research projects at the University of Bristol. The research project will be undertaken at the Health Research Unit Zimbabwe, at the Biomedical Research and Training Institute (BRTI) in Harare. The scheme is funded by the Department of Research and Innovation at North Bristol NHS Trust using unrestricted funding accrued during vaccine trial work with the following companies: AstraZeneca, Valneva, Moderna and Janssen.

The projects will commence in 2024 and the funding will cover clinical salary and certain agreed project costs.

We will mirror the successful applicants NHS pay and progression including transitional pay arrangements.

What will you be doing?

The opportunity is for clinically qualified medical trainees who are at an early stage of their career and who can demonstrate commitment to research, which might include an intercalated degree or other research experience (e.g. undergraduate project). This fellowship will enable the successful candidates to undertake a period of research with a view to exploring a career in academic medicine. Ideally this project would then form the basis of an application for PhD funding.

The fellowship is for 12 months starting between July and September 2024. Projects will be based at THRU-Zim in Harare, Zimbabwe. Funding will cover clinical salary and certain agreed project consumable costs.

You should apply if

Applicants must be fully qualified medical doctors training in an infection specialty in the Severn region – ideally, they will already hold an NTN in either infectious disease or microbiology. If already in specialty training the fellowship will be undertaken as an out of programme module.

All applicants should be entitled to work within the UK.

We particularly encourage applications from candidates keen to conduct interdisciplinary projects and they may be co-supervised by clinical and methodological members of staff.

We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.

Additional information

To apply please complete the online application and attach a 4-page CV, EBIGHF App Form and EBIGHF Special Circumstances form (if necessary).
