SPCR GP Career Progression Fellowships 2017

Applications are invited from general practitioners with a strong academic record and a commitment to a career in academic primary care for these part time awards.

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.

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. Fellowships will be between 12 to 24 months duration with a start date of 01.08.17.

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 or with their doctoral thesis. The award will terminate should the fellow be successful in securing a doctoral training fellowship.

Remuneration, for those applicants that have completed their CCT, will normally be between £62,890 and £71,676 WTE. It is anticipated that most fellowships will be undertaken at 0.5 WTE.

Applications must be received by 12 Noon on Thursday 16th February 2017.

Preliminary interviews will be held on Tuesday 7th March 2017
