NIHR Research Professorships Round 12

The NIHR Research Professorships aim to fund research leaders of the future to promote effective translation of research and to strengthen health, public health and care research leadership at the highest academic levels.

The professorships are 5 year personal awards with an extensive support package including:

  • three support posts
  • research costs
  • a leadership and development programme.

The scheme is open to all professions and all Higher Education Institutions (HEI), in partnership with NHS organisations, or other providers of health, public health and/or care services based in England, to nominate health, public health and social care researchers and methodologists with an outstanding research record of clinical and applied health research and its effective translation for improved health.

Candidates must demonstrate they are on a steep career trajectory to become a research leader having spent no more than five years at their current level of seniority at the time of application.
