NIHR Clinical Lectureships in Dentistry 2021


Supporting Information

For further information about the NIHR ACFs, visit the IAT Programme page, contact or call 0113 532 8444.

The NIHR Clinical Lectureship (CL) is a postdoctoral award that provides a clinical and academic training environment for dentists to establish themselves as independent researchers and leaders. The NIHR has allocated funding for 11 CLs for recruitment in 2021/22, through the Integrated Academic Training (IAT) Programme.  

As an NIHR CL you will spend 50% of your time in research or educationalist training.

Full details, including the eligibility criteria for the NIHR CL, are available in the 2021 Clinical Lectureships (Dental) Guidance Document

The 2021 CLs are available from 05 October 2020, with award starting dates between 01 April 2021 and 31 March 2022.

Candidates for NIHR CLs apply via the online application system Oriel, not the NIHR. Some CL posts may be advertised by the dental school within the IAT partnership. Please use the dentistry academic contacts if you wish to discuss a potential application with a particular partnership.
