NIHR Research Professorships: Round 3, 2013
Nominations were invited for a limited number of prestigious NIHR Research Professorships. The scheme is open to Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), in partnership with NHS organisations, based in England only.
Up to five NIHR Research Professorships will be available in this third round. These awards are open to researchers who have an outstanding record of clinical and applied health research and its effective translation for improved health. Competitive candidates will demonstrate a steep career trajectory over the last 5-10 years, on course to becoming the country's most outstanding research leaders. They will currently be at consultant grade or equivalent, and be at an early career stage having spent no more than five years at their current level of seniority at the time of application.
Each award will consist of a package to support a Professorship, a Post-Doctoral appointment, research running costs, a travel fund, access to the NIHR Leadership Programme and the opportunity for a sabbatical, as well as the basic salary costs of the individual plus indirect costs (for the HEI nominating body only).
A maximum of two nominations were accepted per institution. Nominees who were unsuccessful in previous rounds of the NIHR Research Professorships, were eligible to be re-nominated by the institutional partnership.
The deadline for institutional nominations to be received was Wednesday 12th December 2012 at 5pm.
Twenty seven applications were received in this round. The shortlisting process was undertaken by an international expert panel on 25th April 2013 and all nominees have been informed of the outcome.
Eleven nominees have been invited to interview in London on 25th and 26th June 2013.
