One-Year Surgical Research Fellowship

Deadline: Thursday 25 February 2021 at 2pm

Would you like to spend one-year training in research?

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.

The research must be undertaken in the UK.

The fellowships cover salary, on-costs and some running expenses. Applicants may study any aspect of surgery or surgical care including basic science, diagnosis, treatment, surgical technology, logistics or audit. The main criteria for those interested in applying are to delineate important research questions, with an appropriate study design, which can be completed within the year of the fellowship. The research can also be self-contained or part of a wider research programme.

The supervisor plays a key role in helping with the writing and structure of the application, as well as offering support during the research year.

All applications are rigorously assessed by a panel of experts to ensure that the research, surgeon, supervisor and facilities are of a high standard, and that the proposed work will be valid, beneficial and original.

At the end of each period of research, the fellow is asked to submit an evaluation and a report along with details of publications and presentations.

To Apply

All sections to be completed online, except the Financial Agreement form. This needs to be emailed to by the deadline.

The applicant is required to complete Part A - this will generate an email to the HOD and Supervisor to complete their sections. Please try to ensure everyone has enough time to complete their parts before the deadline. 

Please note: When you add your HOD/Supervisors email address, if it shows as incorrect this may be because they have used an alternative email address at the College - please try alternatives if this occurs.
