The Clinician Scientist Fellowship (CSF) and Clinical Research Training Fellowship (CRTF) in Child and Adolescent Cancer Pain are funded by the Medical Research Foundation and the Medical Research Council (MRC). The fellowship supports UK-based clinicians who have the potential to be the research leaders of the future and to support research that will increase understanding of the disease mechanisms underlying Cancer Pain. Specifically, the fellowships supports clinicians, including (but not limited to) medics, surgeons, dentists, clinical psychologists, public health specialty trainees, allied health professionals, nurses, midwives and veterinarians, to undertake a PhD or other higher research degree. The scheme also provides a route for post-doctoral applicants who achieved their PhD some time ago but who have not been research active since due to clinical training commitments to reacquire research skills. The funding is available for up to 5 years and includes salary according to the stage of training and up to 20,000 GBP per year for consumables, equipment, conference travel, PhD and other course fees.
The next applications open close on January 11, 2024.
