NIHR BRCs / Francis Crick Institute Clinical Training Fellowships Scheme

2016 Applications now closed

The Francis Crick Institute and the National Institute for Health Research Biomedical Research Centres (NIHR BRCs) of its partner universities are keen to collaborate to support training in experimental medicine. Therefore, the Crick are now launching a call for Clinical Training Fellowships (CTFs) to work collaboratively across these institutions. 

Designed with high calibre clinicians in mind, the new Fellowship programme provides an opportunity for talented individuals to accelerate their career in biomedical research.  This initiative aims to recruit the best, brightest and most promising trainee doctors to our one-year fellowship and support them in undertaking research training in experimental medicine.  

A number of projects have been identified with supervisory teams that span one of the Crick partner Universities and the Francis Crick Institute. Candidates will be funded for one year to work on one of these projects across institutions. 

This funded year will provide fellows with an opportunity to undertake research training and gain pilot data to help formulate external funding applications.  External funding must be secured by the fellow for continuation of the project as a PhD. Previous BRC fellows have successfully gained funding from major awarding bodies such as Medical Research Council, the Wellcome Trust, British Heart Foundation, National Institute of Health Research and Kidney Research UK.
