NIHR Research Professorships

The call for applications for NIHR Research Professorships has been announced. The competition for these is extremely tight, since only five are typically awarded nationally, and there is a restriction to two applications per institution. There is a restriction to two applications per institution for standard NIHR Research Professorships and a restriction of one application for Global Health NIHR Research Professorship. A co-ordinated bids process will take place to select Oxford’s applicants.

Those wishing to apply should prepare a two-page expression of interest that contains the following:

  • plain English summary of the research (max 500 words)
  • description of the proposed project
  • training and development summary (max 500 words)
  • state whether you believe your project to be within the remit of the Global Health Professorship

This EOI should be combined with a short CV into one PDF and submitted via IRAMS by noon on Wednesday 17 October 2018.

Institutional nominees identified by the University’s internal competition will proceed to NIHR’s preliminary application stage. This application will need to be completed well in advance of the NIHR submission deadline of 28 November to allow sufficient time for sign-off by both the University and the NHS Trust.

Questions about the application process should be directed to
