The Healthcare Improvement Studies Institutes in UK invites applications for the Senior fellowships for an established researcher of international standing in a senior academic role (professorial or equivalent) to undertake a visionary, field-changing sabbatical, unencumbered by routine duties for 2018 academic year.

Applicants must submit through their university’s administrative or financial authority. Universities should ensure that there is only one fellowship application per university per funding round.

Worth of Award
  • A senior fellowship is intended to be held full-time for six to twelve months.
  • They will consider awarding fellowships on a part-time basis if the applicant is already working part-time, but the award must equate to 100% of the applicant’s part-time role.
  • The fellowship funds can be used to cover back-fill lecturer pay, research and/or sabbatical costs up to £100,000 in total. 
  • This money can be used flexibly, but may not be used to fund additional researcher time on the projector salaries other than back-fill lecturer time.
  • Funding is made available exclusively to release the senior fellow from routine work to enable focus on the specific work proposed for the duration of the fellowship. 
Eligibility
  • Applications are welcome from individuals with clinical or non-clinical professional backgrounds and from a range of disciplines.
  • You must be currently based at a UK university but may choose to spend your sabbatical at another institution, for example, another university in the UK or abroad, or a think-tank, healthcare provider or policy organization.
  • Applicants must submit through their university’s administrative or financial authority. Universities should ensure that there is only one fellowship application per university per funding round.

How to apply

  • All applications must be submitted via the Fellowship Management System.
  • All applications should be submitted by an administrative authority/finance office in the applying university.
  • Applications will be assessed against the selection criteria included in the Guidance for applicants. Shortlisted applications will be sent for external peer review.
