Closing date: 31 March 2018 Publish date: 01 March 2017


The 2017 NIHR Clinical Lectureships (medical) opened on 1st March and will close on 31st March 2018.

NIHR Clinical Lectureships (CLs) are specialty training posts that incorporate academic training.  NIHR Clinical Lecturers (CLs) spend 50% of their time undertaking specialist clinical training and 50% undertaking research or educational research training.

CLs are aimed at those who are advanced in their specialty training, have completed a research doctorate 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 and it is expected that CLs will complete their specialty training during this period.  Alongside clinical training, CLs will be able to further develop their academic skills and will be encouraged to apply for funding to support further Post-Doctoral or educational research training.
