Are you considering a career as a clinical academic but want to experience life as a researcher before you decide?
Applications from suitably qualified medical, veterinary & dental graduates are invited for six month biomedical/health research “primer” projects to be undertaken at the University of Bristol.
These are supported by a Wellcome Trust ‘Institutional Strategic Support Fund’.
The projects will commence in 2021 and the funding will cover clinical salary and associated project costs.
This opportunity is aimed at clinically qualified medical, veterinary and dental trainees who are at an early stage of their career, but who can demonstrate a capability and a drive to undertake a period of research with a view to developing a career in academic medicine.
Successful candidates will undertake a biomedical "primer" project at the University of Bristol with a view to preparing them for a PhD fellowship application.
Applicants must either be fully qualified medical doctors or dentists and will have started, or be ready to start, their specialist training (in which case the project will be undertaken as an out of programme module).
have completed a degree in veterinary medicine or veterinary science; an intercalated degree or other research experience (e.g. undergraduate vacation project) is also desirable.
All applicants should be entitled to work within the European Economic Area (EEA).
Primers will be available in various areas and specialties.
We particularly encourage applications from candidates keen to conduct interdisciplinary projects and they will be co-supervised by clinical and non-clinical members of staff.
The training period is negotiable (range 3-6 months) and will allow time for one clinical session per week, if applicable.
