NRS Career Researcher Fellowships: next round open for applications

NRS Career Researcher Fellowships: next round open for applications

1st September 2021

The next round of NRS Career Researcher Fellowships is now open for applications, with a deadline of Wednesday 17 November 2021

The aim of this scheme is to support General Practitioners and NHS-funded clinical staff in developing a research career within their post. This includes – qualified doctors, nurses, AHPs, pharmacists, biomedical/clinical scientists, public health specialists, and psychologists.

The award provides funding for protected time (2 sessions) to contribute to, conduct and lead clinical research. The aim is to strengthen the research culture in the NHS and to increasing capacity in areas that are either aligned to research excellence either locally or nationally or areas where the potential exists to develop research excellence.

The Chief Scientist Office (CSO) allocates £12.7m per annum to Health Boards through its NHS Research Scotland (NRS) Researcher Support budget to meet the time of staff conducting research. If you are currently doing research but don’t have support for these sessions, you should be applying directly to your R&D office for funding under the Researcher Support strand.

Applications should be emailed to by 5pm, Wednesday 17 November 2021.
