Mid-Career Fellowships

Training and support for talented mid-career clinical academics in and around the South West region to develop an independent fellowship and progress their clinical academic career

What we offer

Our Mid-Career Fellowship Programme is dedicated to identifying and nurturing exceptionally talented mid-career clinical academics in and around the South West region who want to develop an independent fellowship or substantial research grants and progress their clinical academic career.

Fellows will be embedded within at least one of our five core research themes, where they will work in diverse research environments alongside world-leading academics and have access to state of the art facilities.

Fellows will have access to our leading research development support, leadership training and development through the NIHR Academy and our University infrastructure. The Fellowships will be based within the University of Exeter’s Health and Life Sciences Faculty, which brings together academics and students across the spectrum of health, wellbeing and life sciences, including the social and environmental context, to create a holistic community with exciting synergies, dedicated to creating positive impact. In addition, the appointed fellows will have the opportunity to work with local NHS Trusts and commercial partners.

By leveraging expertise, reputation, and opportunities from the University of Exeter, Trusts, NIHR and additional partners, in combination with support from the BRC, we will equip our fellows with the necessary tools to achieve their maximum potential. All fellows will have access to a training programme specific to their needs with wrap-around support and mentorship to maximise success in their next career steps. A key element of this will include the provision of training and support in grant writing to aid fellows in leveraging externally funded grants and becoming independent researchers.
