David Telling Trust call for fellowship and grant applications

15 September 2017

The David Telling Charitable Trust has announced two calls for funding for research proposals within UHBristol and NBT

  • Clinical research fellow awards sessional awards
    These will be awarded to fund a period of research activity for up to three years for clinicians in training. It is anticipated that these will be part funded by the David Telling trust; and/or a service commitment is encouraged funded by the employing trust, and/or funding will also be sought from the Clinical research network West of England for time to develop and perform NIHR portfolio work. These awards thus offer the possibility of developing a research career that can be integrated into clinical training pathways and practice
  • One year Research Fellowship
    Funding is again available for a, for a medical/surgical trainee wishing to take a year out of clinical practice to undertake research. The award will cover the salary costs only of the successful applicant. To apply, please use the attached grant application guidance to describe the research proposed, but also include a CV of the potential research fellow and a) a one side of A4 sheet describing the applicants background and why he/she would benefit from the award and b) a letter of confirmation from the applicants consultant supervisor confirming that the applicant is suitable for the award and that the department involved has the necessary infrastructure, equipment and facilities to support the fellowship and c) a note of the annual salary requested.
  • £25000 Pump-priming Grants
    These are pump priming awards. They are flexible to get new researchers of all professions started.
