Joint RCS Orthopaedic Research UK Fellowship
Deadline: Thursday 25 February 2021 at 2pm
Would you like to spend one-year training in orthopaedic research?
The research must be undertaken in the UK.
Our Joint Research Fellowship with Orthopaedic Research UK (ORUK) can support you with building and developing your research skills, and an ideal platform to prepare you to become a future orthopaedic leader.
The scheme offers the same benefits as the One-Year Surgical Research Fellowship and the application and review process is the same. If you would like your application to be considered for the Joint Fellowship, you must complete relevant sessions in the application form to explain how the research proposal is in one of the following research areas:
- Early diagnosis to effectively control onset of musculoskeletal disease/injuries and pain development.
- Treatment strategies to tackle already existing musculoskeletal disorders to improve quality of life.
This joint research fellowship covers salary, on-costs and some running expenses. Applicants may study any aspect of orthopaedic surgery or surgical care within diagnosis and treatment. The main criteria for those interested in applying are to delineate important research questions, with an appropriate study design, which can be completed within the year of the fellowship. The research can also be self-contained or part of a wider research programme.
The supervisor plays a key role in helping with the writing and structure of the application, as well as offering support during the research year.
All applications are rigorously assessed by a panel of experts from both ORUK and RCS to ensure that the research, surgeon, supervisor and facilities are of a high standard, and that the proposed work will be valid, beneficial and original.
At the end of each period of research, the fellow is asked to submit an evaluation and a report along with details of publications and presentations. It is expected that the successful Fellows will support both organisations with public engagement, annual reports and publications, as well as fundraising campaigns (if any).
The financial and non-financial support of both organisations must be duly acknowledged in all the presentations given by the Fellows.
- To prepare, see the questions for Parts A, B and C.
The applicant is required to complete Part A - this will generate an email to the HOD and Supervisor to complete their sections. Please try to ensure everyone has enough time to complete their parts before the deadline.
Please note: When you add your HOD/Supervisors email address, if it shows as incorrect this may be because they have used an alternative email address at the College - please try alternatives if this occurs.
