Clinician Scientist Postdoctoral Fellowships (CSF) 2020

This scheme will target health and care practitioners from various professional backgrounds who have completed their PhD degree and who are currently (or will at the time of the award be) engaged in delivering clinical care. At this stage of their research career, individuals aim to increase the breadth of research knowledge, skills, methodologies and capabilities as well as establishing strong cross-border collaborations and networks.

Each fellowship will provide backfill funding for 50% FTE of the awardee for protected research time and funding for the research-related costs of a research project. Each award will have a duration of four to five years. The HRB envisages making eight to ten awards.

The scheme mirrors the HRB postdoctoral fellowships scheme ‘Applying Research into Policy & Practice’, which is aimed at building capacity at an equivalent career stage mainly among academic-based health researchers.
