NIHR Clinical Lectureships 2013 31/03/2014
The NIHR Clinical Lectureships (CLs) are specialty-training posts that incorporate academic training. CLs are open to doctors and dentists who already hold a PhD and or equivalent and show outstanding potential for continuing a career in academic medicine. The duration of a CL is for a maximum of 4 years or until CCT is reached, whichever is sooner. Alongside clinical training, CLs are able to develop their academic skills and are encouraged to apply for funding to support further postdoctoral or educational training.
Recruitment is undertaken locally by University/Postgraduate Deanery partnerships. The 2013 recruitment round is now open and will end on 31 March 2014.
