NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowships

Academic Clinical Fellowships are funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), and support NHS doctors undertaking specialty training to also train as academic researchers. Academic Clinical Fellows (ACFs) spend 75 per cent of their time undertaking specialist clinical training, and 25 per cent undertaking research or educationalist training.

The Institute of Cancer Research aims to offer Academic Clinical Fellowship posts (subject to confirmation by NIHR) in Clinical Oncology, Medical Oncology, and other specialties including Paediatrics and Haematology.

The duration of an Academic Clinical Fellowship is for a maximum of three years. During this time, alongside clinical training, ACFs will develop their academic skills and be supported in preparing an application for a Research Training Fellowship to undertake a PhD or MD(Res). 

Applications for NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowships have now closed. To register your interest for future opportunities please email [email protected].
