NIHR Research Professorships (round 11) and Global Research Professorships (round 4)
Application closing date: 13 October 2020
The call is now open to applications for round 11 of the NIHR Research Professorships and round 4 of the Global Research Professorships. The objective of these awards is to promote effective translation of research and to strengthen research leadership at the highest academic levels. The Professorships enable the awardee to spend a fixed 5 year period dedicated to translational research at Professorial level and develop research capacity to accelerate transfer of research ideas into improved health.
Each award will consist of a package to support a professorship, one doctoral and two postdoctoral appointments, research running costs, a travel fund, a leadership and development programme including access to the NIHR Leadership Programme, the opportunity to request a sabbatical and the basic salary costs of the individual plus indirect costs for the University. Successful nominees will be expected to start their award in October, November or December 2021.
Institutions are restricted to two nominees for the NIHR Research Professorships (one of which must be female), plus two nominees for the NIHR Global Research Professorships (one of which must be female) whose research primarily benefits individuals in ODA countries. A co-ordinated bids process will take place to select Oxford’s candidates.
Those wishing to apply must submit a two-page expression of interest and a short CV through IRAMS by noon on Tuesday 13 October 2020.
