The Oxford NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is making funds available to support the career development of nurses, midwives and allied health professionals employed by the Oxford NHS Trusts and/or Oxford University working clinically or in a research capacity.
The funding is usually used to provide salary costs for a period of 6 months full time research or equivalent part time research up to one year. Additional funds may be available to cover specific research related fees such as publication costs and training fees, including our “Essential Research Skills” training course.
The time may be used for analysis and writing up of existing data, to explore a pilot study or to generate data for an application or a publication. The aim of the funding is to generate a publication to aid any eventual postgraduate application.
You will need to have identified a research project and supervisor before applying as well as a statement from your current line manager agreeing to you reorganising your working hours.
Completed application forms should be returned by e-mail to Karen.email@example.com
