SPCR GP Career Progression Fellowships 2016

Applications are invited for a new 12 to 24 month part time award for general practitioners with a strong academic record and a commitment to a career in academic primary care.

Awards are offered at all nine Universities within the NIHR School of Primary Care Research: Bristol, Cambridge, Keele, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford, Southampton and University College London.

Applicants must be qualified general practitioners. General practice trainees can apply but funding will not be granted until CCT is awarded. Fellowships will normally be taken up in October 2016.

These awards are open to Academic Clinical Fellows and In-Practice Fellows.

Applicants holding one of these awards must clearly document progress towards a Doctoral Training Fellowship application or progress towards doctoral thesis completion in their application.

These awards are intended to be flexible and will allow academic general practitioners to develop a formal doctoral training fellowship application. ACFs and IPFs who may have started work towards their doctorate can use these fellowships to complete their PhD/MD.

Remuneration, for those applicants that have completed their CCT, will normally be between £54,199 and £70,966 WTE. It is anticipated that most fellowships will be undertaken at 0.5 WTE.

Applications must be received by 12 Noon on Thursday 25 February 2016.

Preliminary Interviews

The preliminary interviews will be held on 18 March 2016 in the afternoon. Candidates should please ensure they are available on that date.
