NIHR Research Professorships Round 8

  Wednesday, 29 Nov 2017 | Funding Deadline

NIHR Research Professorships aim to fund leaders in the early part of their careers to lead research, 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.

These awards are open to Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), in partnership with NHS organisations, based in England only, to nominate health researchers and methodologists with an outstanding record of clinical and applied health research and its effective translation for improved health.
