Chain Florey Clinical Research Fellowships

The Chain Florey Clinical Research Fellowship Scheme presents clinical trainees with a unique opportunity to study basic science supported by two world-renowned academic institutions, Imperial College and the Medical Research Council London Institute of Medical Sciences (LMS), formerly the Clinical Sciences Centre. The scheme has a variety of PhD projects on offer which focus specifically on basic science rather than on clinical research.
Chain Florey Clinical Research Fellowships provide an ideal base for those wishing to pursue a career in clinical academia. You should possess prior laboratory experience and need to demonstrate the skill base and motivation for a basic science PhD; each Fellow is expected to complete their PhD within the duration of the appointment.

The recruitment programme will be open until 31 January 2019. Applications can be submitted at any time and will be reviewed on an on-going basis.

Closing Date - 31st January 2019
