The Dean’s Prize for Clinicians
Salary: Competitive
Fixed Term for 2 years 

The Dean wishes to announce a Prize fellowship scheme for clinicians with
the goal of preparing excellent candidates for clinical intermediate or senior
fellowships from UK national funding bodies such as the Medical Research
Council (MRC), Wellcome Trust (WT) or National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

Preparing for intermediate fellowship

You will have: completed doctoral studies, ideally under the auspices of an
MRC, Wellcome Trust or NIHR doctoral fellowship or equivalent; undertaken
postdoctoral research, for instance while holding an NIHR Academic Clinical
Lecturer post; most likely have reached the end of your clinical specialist
training; and recognise the need for a further period of up to 24 months
following completion of clinical specialty training in order to maximise your
momentum for applications at intermediate/clinician-scientist fellowship
level. At all stages you will have demonstrated excellent productivity with
research outputs at internationally leading standards. You may have secured
additional funds such as an Academy of Medical Sciences starter grant.
Overseas applicants will be considered but must show comparable markers
of success and be eligible for clinical service commitment within the UK
National Health Service (NHS).

Preparing for Senior fellowship

You will have completed doctoral training as above and, in addition, have
undertaken very substantial postdoctoral research with a number of research
outputs at internationally leading standards. You are likely to have held
previously or be coming to the end of an intermediate clinician-scientist
fellowship from a major UK funder such as the MRC, WT or NIHR. Overseas
applicants will be considered but must show comparable markers of success
and be eligible for clinical service commitment within the UK NHS.

Non-medical clinicians are welcome to apply but must meet the eligibility
criteria from major funders, such as the MRC, for holding a clinical research
fellowship (i.e. rather than being directed to non-clinical schemes).

The University of Manchester will support your basic salary up to 0.5 full time
equivalent (FTE) with the remaining 0.5 FTE made up from the most appropriate NHS partner of the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC). This will be determined post-interview.

Applications must be made using the specific form available, which requests
brief details about you, your academic CV and 3-pages on your research plans for the 2-year period, including your timeline for each particular fellowship application.

Informal enquiries can be made to Katy Boyle, Faculty Fellowship Academy
Manager at or 0161 850 2004.

Closing date: 6 November 2017 at 9am.

applications from all sections of the community.
