The Moondance Foundation 2 year Research Fellowship

The Royal College of Surgeons of England and The Moondance Foundation

  • 2 year Research Fellowship

  • Fully funded research fellowship leading to MD or equivalent

  • Based in Cardiff University and Bowel Screening Wales.

  • Supervisors: Professor Jared Torkington and Dr Sunil Dolwani

Due to the generosity of the Moondance Foundation, The Royal College of Surgeons is delighted to be able to seek applications for a RCS Fellowship funded for two years.

 
In having unprecedented access to the data of 10 years of Bowel Screening Wales, it is expected that the successful candidate will generate original research leading to the award of MD or PHD.
 
There are 2000 new cases of bowel cancer a year in Wales and the Bowel Screening Programme celebrated its 10 year anniversary in 2018.  In 2019 Bowel Screening Wales will switch to the new Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) and is committed to lowering the screening age range to 50 years.
 
Based in Cardiff University with supervision from Professor Jared Torkington and Dr Sunil Dolwani the Fellow will receive training in research and epidemiology. This fellowship is part of a wider bowel cancer initiative looking to transform the outcomes of the disease in the next decade.
 

Eligibility:

 
  • Subscribing trainee members of the College in a training post, or trainees who have passed the MCQ papers and will sit the final MRCS examination at this College, are eligible to apply.
  • Applicants must be able to start the fellowship immediately, or by October 2019 at the latest.
 
Application details:
  • CV and Cover letter describing your interest in the fellowship
  • All applications must include a supporting statement from the Head of Surgical Training at your Deanery to express their full support of your fellowship appointment, should you be successful.

Submit all documents as an electronic file to research@rcseng.ac.uk, with the title ‘Application for RCS/Moondance Foundation Fellowship’ by Tuesday 23 April 2019.

Interviews will be held in Cardiff on Monday 13 May.
