Health and Care Research Wales is pleased to announce a new call for applications to the Health Research Fellowship scheme.
Health Research Fellowships aim to support individuals to become independent researchers and to undertake high quality research. Applications are invited from across all sectors and scientific disciplines.
The Fellowship offers three years full-time funding (or four or five years part-time) to individuals who have no more than 60-months FTE postdoctoral research experience at the time of applying. Applicants are expected to show evidence of a clear commitment to a research career and demonstrate how the award will support the potential to become an independent researcher.
Projects supported under this scheme should aim to provide robust evidence with clear relevance to patients, the public, service users, carers and/or the organisation and delivery of effective healthcare in Wales. The scheme will support the early stages of intervention development where knowledge obtained from these preliminary studies will provide the underpinning evidence for future pilot testing and evaluation.
Eligibility requirements include:
- Applicants must be based at an institution or organisation in Wales at the time of applying.
- Applicants must have a PhD, or other research-based professional doctorate in health and social care-related research (Health and Care Research Wales will also accept applications from Applicants who have submitted their PhD thesis, or equivalent, to their institution for assessment. In these cases the Applicant must have been notified of a successful outcome by 29 November 2017).
Deadline: 29 November 2017
