NIHR: restructure of Fellowship schemes

30 April 2018

NIHR Fellowships will support individuals with the potential and on a trajectory to become future leaders in NIHR research.

The Fellowships have been designed to support people at various points of their development to become leading researchers, from initial pre-doctoral training to senior post-doctoral research. Four different types of Fellowship will be available:

  • Pre-Doctoral Fellowship
  • Doctoral Fellowship
  • Advanced Fellowship
  • Development and Skills Enhancement Award.

Further information is available on the NIHR Fellowships webpages

NIHR have recently reviewed their support for career development and training, and have announced a restructure of their current personal award provision into new Academic Career Development Fellowships. This is in the most part a consolidation of several programmes into a single streamlined fellowship funding route.

In addition, a 1-hour webinar on the new schemes is available to watch here (registrateion may be required, no sound for first 4m30s)
