Key features


Our Post-Doctoral, Post CCT Research Fellowship for doctors provides :

  • Two years (maximum, full time) bridging time to conduct clinical research

Our Imperial Post-Doctoral, Post-CCT Research Fellowship (IPPRF) award is funded jointly by the Imperial College London Faculty of Medicine and the Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund. We recruit to the award annually and usually open for applications in November.  The purpose of the Fellowship is to draw on the research strengths of Imperial and attract early stage clinical academics finishing clinical training to work towards Clinician Scientist, Wellcome Trust or other externally funded clinical research mid-level awards.

We offer up to two opportunities offering two-year awards to talented individuals with a commitment to conducting research at Imperial College London who possess the potential to become leaders in academic medicine.  Applicants must be fully qualified Medical Doctors, have been awarded a PhD or MD and hold a CCT, or be within 12 months of obtaining CCT (or equivalent) at the time of application.
