The British Heart Foundation has announced two new fellowship schemes for nurses and allied health professionals. Both schemes are outlined below and further details for both calls can be found on the British Heart Foundation website.
The British Heart Foundation invites applications for its career development research fellowships for nurses and allied health professionals. These enable researchers with an established research record who intend to become leaders in academic nursing or allied health professional research to spend time in an established research institution in the UK.
Applicants must hold a PhD or equivalent taught practitioner doctorate. They must have the support of a named senior investigator who will guarantee access to space and resources and provide scientific guidance for the duration of their fellowship.
Fellowships last for three years, with the possibility of a two year extension. Awards may include the salary of the applicant, the salary for technician or research assistant if required and fully justified, research consumables and equipment.
The British Hearth Foundation invites applications for its research training fellowships for nurses and allied health professionals. These provide nurses and allied health professionals with a foundation in research training in an established research institution in the UK, leading to the award of a PhD.
Applications must be submitted by an established investigator who will be the supervisor for the named student. The primary supervisor must devote a minimum of 10 per cent of their time to supervising the student and a second supervisor should also be included. The student should usually hold a good quality masters degree or equivalent.
Fellowships usually last for three years, although applications for up to five years will be considered to enable part-time working. They include salary costs and research consumables usually worth up to £10,000 per year
Dates for the first call for both Fellowships in 2019 haven't yet been announced. There will be two calls for each scheme a year.
