The Research Fellowship supports members in the early stages of their research careers.
This includes mature applicants who may have worked mainly in clinical roles and would like the chance to pick up and explore their research interests later in their career.
The award will be for short pieces of research work, between 6 months to 1 year, and are intended for either a stand-alone research project or a pilot study, which could lead to a larger grant or PhD application. There is an annual fund of up to £80k. As a guide we suggest about £20k to £40k per project.
2017 was the first year of the fellowship scheme, and we were delighted to see applications from all MDT roles. Three successful fellowships were awarded in 2017 and the projects are progressing well.
