This post is offered by the University of Leicester in partnership with the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust and Health Education England working across the East Midlands as support to the BHF Accelerator Award. The BHF Accelerator (£2.5M over 5 years) has been awarded to the University of Leicester/ UHL partnership to attract, identify and develop, the next generation of early career researchers such that they have progressed to independent research leaders within the life-time of the award. The post holder will become a member of an Accelerator cohort of early career researchers who will be supported by bespoke training, mentoring, and educational programmes.
The post offers the opportunity for those with excellent potential as clinical academics to further develop their clinical & academic skills, produce high level publications and to compete and attract external grant funding. Appointees will spend 50% of their time in clinical training and 50% of their time undertaking academic work.
The Postgraduate Dean has confirmed that this post has the required educational and staffing approval.
