Early Career Researcher Opportunity

The NIHR Portfolio Development group is supporting a number of workshops developed and coordinated by Dr Katie Featherstone to support a cohort of Early Career Researchers working in the field of Dementia in writing and submitting their first significant grant as PI aimed at NIHR/MRC/Alzheimer’s Society/Alzheimer’s Research UK funding streams.

This is a brilliant opportunity to understand the process including funding your narrative, meet other researchers in a similar situation, and learning the craft of successful grant writing from experienced NIHR and NHS researchers who have been there, and very successfully, done that. Submitting a large grant proposal can be a daunting prospect; these workshops aim to support and provide mentorship to a cohort of Early Career Researchers to develop clinical interdisciplinary research ideas, foster collegiate working practices, and ultimately submit a high-quality research proposal.

  • Workshop 1: How to identify clinically relevant research questions
  • Workshop 2: Developing research that meets the needs of people living with dementia
  • Workshop 3: Cohesion of story and achieving methodological congruence
  • Workshop 4: Designing and delivering dissemination and impact

There are still a couple of funded places left on this year’s series of workshops to be hosted in London, please email megan.calvert-ohare@nihr.ac.uk for more information on how to apply by 7th February.
