NIHR Short Placement Awards for Research Collaboration
Opportunity for NIHR academy members to receive a £5,000 award and collaborate with us.
We are delighted to be participating in the NIHR Short Placement Awards for Research Collaboration (SPARC) scheme.
This competition welcomes NIHR Academy Members (PhD or early career post-doctoral researchers), who are supported by NIHR Infrastructure and NIHR Schools, to spend time in other parts of the NIHR.
The placement is funded by awards of up to £5,000 and is designed to optimise and enhance the individuals’ experience as well as their CVs and careers.
By embedding yourself in our team, you will develop skills and gain experience of what is needed to have a successful working relationship with industry and how to evaluate new in vitro diagnostic tests.
The placement period is flexible but is suggested to last from a few weeks to 6 months.
For the current round 7 competition, the award should be completed between April 2021 and February 2022.
The deadline for applications is 1 pm on the 26th November 2020.
More information can be found on the NIHR website.
