The Health Research Board has opened its scheme for Clinician Scientist Postdoctoral Fellowships (CSF) 2020.
This scheme will target health and social care practitioners from various professional backgrounds who have completed their PhD degree and who are currently (or will be at the time of the award) engaged in delivering clinical care. At this stage of their research career, individuals aim to increase the breadth of research knowledge, skills, methodologies and capabilities as well as establishing strong cross-border collaborations and networks.
Each fellowship will provide backfill funding for 50% FTE of the awardee for protected research time and funding for the research-related costs of a research project. Each award will have a duration of four to five years. The HRB envisages making eight to ten awards.
The scheme is now open with a closing date for applications of 1.00 pm on 7th November 2019. Full details of the fellowships and the application process can be found on the HRB website.
