GP Career Progression Fellowships
Applications are invited for a new 2 year 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 eight Universities within the NIHR School of Primary Care Research: University College London, Birmingham, Bristol, Nottingham, Keele, Manchester, Oxford and Southampton.
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 2013.
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 Fellowships will be around £35k pa for 0.5fte.
Appointments are for 2 years, on a half time basis, although the exact combination of academic to clinical time is flexible and will reflect the stage of the applicant in preparing their doctoral training fellowship application. Whilst awards are tenable for two years, the award will terminate should the fellow be successful in securing a doctoral training fellowship.
For further written information, which will contain details of the application procedure, see link below.
Please quote reference number NSPCR Fellowship in all correspondence.
