The pan-London research strategy focuses on areas of unmet need directly linked to new models of care initiated by the Cancer Alliances in London. There are two main workstreams which support areas identified as priorities in the NHS Long Term Plan: cancer inequalities and personalised care of people living with and beyond cancer.
There is an exciting opportunity for medical and non-medical research fellows to undertake a patient-based and clinically relevant research project. These fellowships have London-based support from Biomedical Research Centres, RM Partners, North Central London Cancer Alliance, North East London Cancer Alliance and South East London Cancer Alliance.
The posts are open to medical and non-medical professionals including nurses, pharmacists, psychologists, physiotherapists, health scientists, clinical research practitioners and other allied health professionals (AHP).
Fellowship funding includes salary and running costs for 12 months with an aim to gain preliminary data and work on competitive applications to external funding bodies to fund continuation of the project into a higher degree.
There will be funding up to six research fellows for this coming year. The role description and full list of research projects, as well as details of how to apply, are available on the RM Partners website.
Closing date for applications is Friday 26 November.
