Clinical PhD Scheme
Wellcome 4ward North Clinical PhD Scheme in Northern England
Call for Stage 1 Applications
The 4ward North Clinical PhD Academy invites Stage 1 applications from high quality clinical trainees who wish to undertake a PhD as a first step towards combining research with a clinical career. The Academy is an exciting consortium built on leading research excellence in the Universities of Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle and Sheffield in collaboration with The Francis Crick Institute. The Academy has won funding from Wellcome to award places on a prestigious Wellcome clinical PhD programme over a five year period. This is the third year of entry into the Wellcome Scheme that will launch the careers of aspiring researchers.
At this first stage, 20 applicants will be selected based on CV and short vision statement of why they want to undertake research training. All 20 will work-up a cutting-edge PhD proposal with our pool of leading supervisors. Of these, five will be selected for funding by shortlisting and interview in spring 2019 (Stage 2 selection) and will begin their PhD as Wellcome clinical doctoral fellows in autumn 2019. Those successful at Stage 1 but not Stage 2 will be supported through the application process to other funders. The Academy can support all clinical specialties across the breadth of the 4 Universities.
