Clinical Research Training Fellowships

University of Liverpool and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, Institute of Infection and Global Health
Location: University Campus (Year 1), Overseas (Years 2-4)
£31,838 - £56,312 pa
Ref: R-584933/WWW
Closing date for receipt of applications: Fri, 31 Jan 2022 17:00:00 GMT
We are recruiting for three Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Training Fellowships titled Health Priorities in Resource Limited Settings for our 7th cohort intake, commencing 1 September 2014.
The duration of the clinical training fellowship will be for a maximum of 4 years, with the first year based in Liverpool completing an MRes, and most or all of the remaining 3 years completing a clinical research PhD based overseas in a lower middle income country (L-MIC), addressing a research question of relevance to local health needs.
To apply medical graduates must have passed the relevant exam for their specialty, e.g. MRCP, MRCS, MRCOphth etc. GPs are advised to contact the office to clarify their eligibility. It is anticipated that many applicants will have already commenced their specialist training, but this is not essential.

Commenting on these fellowships Mr. Tim Goodacre said:

"This is an excellent opportunity, and I'm sure the fellowships will be highly sought after & therefore competitive. However, it'd be superb if a young research interested plastic surgeon were to take up the challenge and have a good idea to present. I'm sure we should publicise the advert, and suggest that anyone interested (who of course would need to be in a position to move to Liverpool for a years MRes followed by 3 years off & on in a developing nation) could contact any of the BFIRST committee to chat about possible avenues for research if they need inspiration."
