NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowships in Dentistry 2020



Supporting Information

The NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship (ACF) is a clinical specialty training post in dentistry that incorporates academic training. The NIHR has allocated funding for 23 ACFs for recruitment in 2020/21, through the Integrated Academic Training (IAT) Programme.  

As an NIHR ACF you will have access to Masters-level research training to develop academic skills and spend 25% of your time in research or educationalist training. The NIHR ACF is a 3 year fellowship with a flexible entry level tailored to the career stage of the applicant.

Full details, including the eligibility criteria for the NIHR ACF, are available in the 2020 Academic Clinical Fellowship (Dental) Guidance Document.

The 2020 ACFs are available from 07 October 2019, with award starting dates from 01 April 2020.

Candidates for NIHR ACFs apply via the online application system Oriel, not the NIHR, because recruitment is managed by Health Education England (HEE) Local Offices.

Please use the dentistry academic contacts if you wish to discuss a potential application with a particular partnership.
