DEADLINE EXTENDED AHSP Research Support Awards for clinical staff in NHS Tayside

31st May, 2016


NHS Tayside clinical staff are invited to apply for new research support funding offered by the Academic Health Science Partnership in Tayside (AHSP).   

High quality research, alongside education and training of health professionals and high standards of clinical care underpin the ambition of AHSP to create world-leading improvements in population health and transform healthcare. Consistent with this ambition, AHSP seeks to support non-medical NHS Tayside employed clinical staff in developing a research career within their NHS post through a new funding scheme entitled ‘AHSP Research Support Awards’. The scheme is open to nurses, AHPs, pharmacists, dentists, biomedical/clinical scientists, and others, excluding medical doctors, and complements the research support scheme open to medical consultants via AHSP Clinical Fellowships.

Awards of up to £25,000 are available for protected time (sessions) to enable applicants to contribute to, conduct and lead clinical research. Research proposals must have the potential of a clear patient benefit, be of high quality and have an emphasis on applied health services research.

The closing date for applications is 8 July 2016. Please see scheme documentation and visit scheme website for further information about the awards.
