The NIHR Trainees Coordinating Centre (TCC) is pleased to announce the launch of Round 4 of the NIHR Research Professorships.
NIHR Research Professorships aims to fund leaders in the early part of their careers to lead research, to promote effective translation of research ('bench to bedside[T1] and 'campus to clinic' [T2]) and strengthen research leadership at the highest academic levels.
The posts aim to:
- Enable outstanding early career academics to spend a fixed 5 year period dedicated to translational (T1 or T2) research at Professorial level;
- Facilitate strong research leadership and develop research capacity in areas critical to accelerating the transfer of research ideas into improved health.
Nominees should be working in the fields of experimental medicine, public health medicine, health services research or methodological research.
The deadline for institutional nominations via the new online application system is 23rd January 2014. Please note that a maximum of two nominations will be accepted per HEI. Should more than two be nominated, the institution will be asked to prioritise which nominations will proceed.
