Applications are now open for the Centre for Translational Medicine Clinical Research Excellence Fellowships scheme hosted by King’s Health Partners.
This scheme offers up to 24 months protected research time for health professionals at the postdoctoral stage of clinical academic training. The scheme is open to any postdoctoral health professional working, or planning to work, in the area of translational medical research.
These fellowships are designed to provide a bridging period of protected research time to support individuals to apply for more substantial, competitive research funding to further their clinical academic career.
The time should be used to generate data to support subsequent funding applications, deliver research outputs such as peer-reviewed articles, and build research skills and/or collaborations.
Successful applicants will also have access to a programme of research training and career development through King’s Clinical Academic Training Office (KCATO) and other entities across the KHP organisations.
Fellowships are available to health professionals (including doctors, dentists, nurses, midwives, allied or other health practitioners) across a diverse range of topics relevant to translational medicine. Researchers/scientists who are non-clinical are not eligible to apply.
You can find full eligibility criteria on https://www.kingshealthpartners.org/our-work/centre-for-translational-medicine
This scheme seeks to match the current salary of fellows during the research period, including on-costs (up to a total of £150k over two years).
In addition, applicants can request up to £10,000 per annum (pro rata) in research running costs/consumables, and a bursary of up to £1,000 per annum for travel and training expenses.
