Hospital for Tropical Diseases Charitable Fund Centenary Fellowships
The HTD Charitable Fund invites applications from GMC-registered medical doctors in the UK for two clinical research fellowships. As part of the commemoration activities of the centenary of the Hospital for Tropical Diseases a clinical Fellowship scheme has been established.
These Centenary Fellowships are designed to extend the purview of HTD research beyond the walls of the hospital. Examples of the sorts of research might include investigation in target populations (specific migrant groups, VFR travellers, immunocompromised) channelled either through communities and community groups or through collaborations in primary care.
Each fellowship provides salary funding to support a junior doctor to undertake a period of research directly relevant to the work of HTD. The intention is that this will be primarily research outside of the hospital setting, either in the community or in primary care. Two fellowships are to be awarded each year. Salary support is available for either six months full-time or 12 months half-time (according to awardee preference) and does not include research costs, although there may be opportunities to separately request modest costs from the HTD Charitable Fund.
Any junior medical doctor with an active license to practise is eligible. Junior doctors in primary and secondary care are particularly encouraged to apply. Together with your proposed supervisor you will develop and execute a research proposal to be completed during the duration of the Fellowship. Your supervisor, who should have agreed to participate, must be identified in the application form and may be a hospital Consultant (not necessarily from HTD/UCLH) or a GP.
