Applications for the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) and Rosetrees Trust Joint Research Fellowships are now open.
The fellowships provide seed-corn funding for junior doctors or new consultants to spend one year of protected time undertaking important and innovative research, developing research proposals and collecting pilot data in order to submit applications and obtain further funding for their projects.
The work funded by the fellowships will ideally lead to an MD or PhD in support of a career in academic medicine.
The application is open to junior doctors and consultants in the NHS who are four or more years post-CMT and are members of the RCP. The fellowships will provide £45,000 for salary and £5,000 for travel and project costs over one year.
Applicants who are planning to work in institutions without biomedical research centres or on research topics that are not usually significantly funded are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to highly translational work that will see positive outcomes for patients within the next ten years.
Application forms are available for download from the RCP website and should be submitted by the closing date of 7 June 2020.
