Dunhill Medical Trust Research Training Fellowships.

1 December 2016

It's the launch of a fifth round of Dunhill Medical Trust Research Training Fellowships. 

 

Applications are invited from all clinicians and health or social care professionals (including more senior staff) working in the NHS, social services or higher education institutions in the UK, who would like a career in research aimed at improving care for older people, but lack the necessary training and academic grounding to do so. Whilst successful candidates will be expected to undertake a practical research project, the main focus of the fellowships will be on the completion of a robust training programme to equip them with a detailed understanding of applied research principles and practice.  These are personal training fellowships which are intended to be flexible, and may be undertaken on either a 3 year full-time or up to a 6 year part-time basis.

 

I am enclosing a copy of our advertising flyer, and would be grateful if you could make this information available within your institution as appropriate.  Further information can be obtained by visiting the Dunhill Medical Trust website www.dunhillmedical.org.uk. The closing date for applications is Friday 27thJanuary 2017.

 

I hope this information is of interest to you.  If you are able to help by disseminating it to appropriate people within your organisation, it would be greatly appreciated.  If you have any queries, either about DMT Research Training Fellowships or any other aspect of DMT’s grant-making, please e-mail us at rtfs@dunhillmedical.org.uk oradmin@dunhillmedical.org.uk.

Building capacity for academic writing.. by Professor Anne Rogers

‘publication tsunami that is now an exponential wave’. The effects of this tsunami are well rehearsed: the enormous pressure on peer review processes; reduction in the time researchers have to read individual outputs; and, perhaps most commented on, the growth of a commercial market of fee-for-publication-based journals which lack the usual bulwarks of scientific credibility read blog >

Patient and public involvement is vital to the success of the CLAHRC.

We would be pleased to hear from you if you are interested in becoming involved in our research and implementation.

How can I get involved?
