Dunhill Medical Trust-Alzheimer’s Research UK Clinical Research Fellowship Now Open

Dunhill Medical Trust has partnered with Alzheimer’s Research UK to fund either a Clinical Research Training Fellowship or a Clinical Research Fellowship.

Clinical Research Training Fellowships are designed to provide a means for clinically qualified candidates to obtain the research track record and skills required to compete for full Clinical Fellowships through Alzheimer’s Research UK or elsewhere, either through a PhD or independent research programme. Clinically qualified candidates, such as trainee Old Age/General Psychiatrists, Neurologists, Clinical Psychologists or similar specialists with limited research experience and who do not hold a PhD are eligible to apply. The prospective Fellow should be able to demonstrate an upward trajectory, with some evidence of outputs from previous research projects, such as publications and/or conference presentations. Prospective Fellows should also be able to demonstrate a genuine interest in pursuing a career in dementia research.

Clinical Research Fellowships are designed for promising clinically qualified researchers who have delivered previous research projects with evidence of impactful outputs and have clear plans to establish their own research ‘niche’.

For both Fellowships, the lead applicant and point of contact must be based in a UK academic/research institution. However, the application can include researchers or institutions outside the UK.

Funding is provided for salary plus up to £20,000 per year towards research costs, including animals and running costs (consumables, travel, and so on) for up to three years.

The deadline for applications is 3 July 2019. Applicants will be notified of a decision in early February 2020.
