There is an exciting opportunity for medical and non-medical research fellows to undertake a patient-based and clinically relevant cancer research project. These fellowships have London-based support from Biomedical Research Centres, RM Partners, North Central London Cancer Alliance, North East London Cancer Alliance and South East London Cancer Alliance.
The pan-London research strategy focuses on areas of unmet need directly linked to new models of care initiated by the Cancer Alliances in London. There are two main workstreams which support areas identified as priorities in the NHS Long Term Plan: cancer inequalities and personalised care of people living with and beyond cancer.
The posts are open to medical and non-medical professionals including nurses, pharmacists, psychologists, physiotherapists, health scientists, clinical research practitioners and other allied health professionals (AHP).
Fellowship funding includes salary and running costs for 12 months with an aim to gain preliminary data and work on competitive applications to external funding bodies to fund continuation of the project into a higher degree.
We will be funding up to six research fellows for this coming year. Links to the list of research projects and the role description can be found here. For more information please contact Dr Michelle Chen, Research & Innovation Lead RMPartners.Research@nhs.net
Closing date for applications is Friday 26 November.
