Birmingham Health Partners Starter Fellowships

Birmingham Health Partners Starter Fellowships Opportunity

Are you a junior doctor interested in translational research? Would you like to undertake a PhD or MD but need the skills and experience to make the first step? Do you have an idea for a research project but need funding to develop an application for a competitive fellowship?

The Birmingham Health Partners (BHP) is proud to be offering a fellowship scheme designed to provide the launch pad for a clinician interested in translational research.

During the fellowship, applicants are expected to undertake the necessary pilot and preparatory work required to apply to research funding bodies for a competitive clinical doctoral training fellowship for a further two or three years protected research time to allow the successful completion of the project, acquisition of an MD or PhD and progression towards a clinical academic career.  Successful fellows will be expected to provide medical cover to the Clinical Research Facility one day per week.

What will the fellowship offer?

  • The fellowships will provide one year’s salary cost which is expected to be undertaken full-time
  • Successful completion of one year’s research will result in award of a Masters by Research
  • You will gain full access to the University of Birmingham (UoB), University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) and Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust (BWCH) education facilities
