Advanced Fellowship Round 6

 
The NIHR Advanced Fellowship funds post-doctoral individuals from a range of health and social care professions who haven’t yet been awarded a chair. Whether you are someone who has recently been or about to be awarded a PhD, or someone with several years of post-doctoral experience, you could be eligible to apply for an Advanced Fellowship.

The Fellowship funds:
  • full salary support, including protected time to concentrate on research
  • research costs
  • a bespoke training and development programme to meet individual needs

Applicants who are active clinicians or social workers can request for up to 40% of their time to be dedicated to clinical service/development/practice, which will be covered by the Fellowship.

Full details of the remit of research funded by the NIHR and eligibility criteria can be found in the guidance notes.

Charity partnerships

The NIHR Academy is offering jointly funded NIHR Charity Partnership Fellowships for this Round with the following charities:

The guidance notes provide specific eligibility criteria for the partnerships. Contact details for each charity, and applicants are encouraged to contact the relevant charity partner to discuss their research area of interest before applying.

Industry partnerships

The NIHR is wanting to promote and increase the number of people with the necessary skills and experience to work at the interface between Higher Education Institutes, industry and the NHS.

Therefore as part of this round, we are offering a jointly funded NIHR Industry Partnership Fellowship with Pfizer.

For Advanced Fellowships, opportunities will be available to propose research in a number of areas including Atopic Dermatitis, the most common inflammatory skin condition; Alopecia Areata, a common cause of immune mediated non scarring hair loss; Vitiligo, a disease that causes loss of skin colour in patches; Plaque Psoriasis, a chronic autoimmune condition causing patches of thick, red, scaly skin.
