Stroke Association: Postdoctoral Fellowships and Clinical-Academic Postdoctoral Fellowships

  Monday, 30 Jan 2023 | Funding Deadline



The Stroke Association supports Fellows who plan to conduct stroke research into clinical and applied health, including social care research. This includes research that is conducted to answer specific questions relating to day-to-day practice in health services or community settings, and which has the potential to have an impact on the health or well-being of people affected by stroke. A clear trajectory to patient benefit is essential. The Postdoctoral Fellowship schemes will allow a fellow to hold research funds in their own name, and to undertake an independent research project under the supervision of an established member of the stroke research community. It is a condition of award that the fellow seeks to obtain further research funds during the tenure of the award in order to consolidate and advance their career.

  • Postdoctoral Fellowships: This award is for candidates who do not wish to undertake clinical activity during their PDF, or who do not have a clinical background. Postdoctoral Fellowships are intended to provide the necessary skills and training for the development of an independent career in stroke research.
  • Clinical-Academic Postdoctoral Fellowships: This award focuses on supporting capacity for clinical academic roles in stroke. The Postdoctoral Clinical-Academic Fellowship (CPDF) is aimed at the future clinical-academic leaders in stroke who have already completed a PhD and are establishing themselves nationally, both clinically and academically.

Deadline for proposals: 30 January 2023
