We are pleased to be able to offer two Chief Nurse Pre-Doctoral Research Fellowships to provide ‘first-step funding’ for health professionals looking to begin their academic career.

The key aim of the fellowship is to allow nurses and professions allied to health the opportunity to undertake up to 12 months full-time or 24 months part time to develop their research skills, their CV and portfolio and produce the necessary data to springboard onto a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Fellowship application. The Fellowship will be timed to end at the same time as the closing date for the NIHR Clinical Research Fellowship Applications.

Applicants are asked to identify an important research question that will make an impact on patient care within the Trust, surrounding communities and the wider NHS.

Please see the attached guide on how to complete your application. Please submit your completed application form to
