PhD Programme for Health Professionals now open for applications

An exciting PhD Programme for Health Professionals has been established in partnership between the Universities of Cambridge and East Anglia and the Wellcome Sanger Institute. From 2022, funding is available for seven Fellowships each year for the next five years.

The scheme is ideally suited to clinical health professionals of the highest calibre, seeking to pursue a successful academic career.

If appropriate, predoctoral research placements in different research groups enable fellows to make an informed choice of supervisor and project, leading to a PhD.

In addition, the programme offers bespoke training and mentoring for a successful research experience, and guidance postdoctorally. Many graduates of the previous Clinical PhD Programme have continued in an academic pathway, gaining higher research fellowships, and achieving academic faculty positions.

Fellowships cover the broad themes of Genetic and Molecular Basis of Disease; Pathogens, Infectious Disease and Immunity; Physiology, Pathophysiology and Experimental Medicine; Behaviour, Mental Health and Neurological Diseases; Epidemiology, Prevention and Public Health; Health Care Delivery and Improvement.

Application deadline: Monday 17 January 2022 (midday UK time).
