The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) is launching the 9th round of Advanced Fellowships as part of the NIHR Fellowship Programme.

These awards are for individuals and their host organisations looking to submit an application to the Advanced Fellowship. If you are unsure whether you are eligible to apply for this award – please see below details.

The NIHR Advanced Fellowship is a post-doctoral Fellowship aimed at anyone with a PhD who hasn’t yet been awarded a Chair. Applicants who are active clinicians (defined as being either a registered doctor, dentist or registered healthcare professionals eligible to apply for the Integrated Clinical Academic programme) or social workers, are able to request up to 40% of their time be dedicated to clinical service/development/practice, which will be covered by the Fellowship. Fellowships are between 2 and 5 years Whole Time Equivalent (WTE) in duration and may be taken up on a part-time basis between 50% and 100% WTE.

The NIHR is partnering with Moorfields Eye Charity, MS Society, Rosetrees Trust, The Colt Foundation and Pfizer to offer joint Advanced Fellowships as part of Round 9.
