Applications are invited for this national competition for 3 year awards from individuals with a strong academic record who wish to develop a career in primary care research. Awards are offered at all eight Universities within the NIHR School of Primary Care Research: Birmingham, Bristol, Nottingham, Keele, London (University College), Manchester, Oxford, and Southampton.

As the eight Universities do not always offer mentorship in every discipline relevant to primary care, it is possible to apply for a “linked” award so that applicants can benefit from training within the School but maintain a link with or be primarily based within a University outside the School that can provide discipline-specific mentoring. In these cases, the linked NSPCR partner must be agreed and specified in the application.

Awards will normally be taken up in October 2013.

Applicants must have a first degree in a discipline relevant to primary care research and will be expected to complete a PhD/DPhil during the award period. The precise academic qualifications required depend on the University and training offered. Students must be defined as "home" for fee purposes to be eligible to apply for this award.

Studentship awards include fees, an annual tax-free stipend of £18,000 and a non‐pay allowance of up to £30,000

For further written information, which will contain details of the application procedure, see link below.  

Formal applications must be received by noon on 07 January 2013.
