Cambridge Clinical Research Fellowships

Research fellowFostering the future leaders of clinical research

The Cambridge Clinical Research Fellowships scheme has supported outstanding doctors, nurses, midwives and allied health professionals in the early stages of the clinical academic research training pathway. The scheme offers intensive research training in an exceptional environment and provides an entry point into a career in clinical academia.  It provides salary support and a consumable allowance for up to one year during which time it is anticipated that successful candidates will apply for nationally competitive fellowships, with a view to completing a PhD.

Since 2007, Cambridge Clinical Research Fellowships have been supported by Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre and the Evelyn Trust. In 2016, they were also supported by co-funding from the Isaac Newton Trust  and a generous gift to ACT from the family of Phillip Greenwood and we are delighted this will continue in 2017. 

The 2017 round of Fellowships is now open. An application form and guidelines for applicants can be found here or are available by contacting Claire Teager via

The closing date for receipt of initial applications from doctors is Monday 6 March (by 12 noon). The following fellowships are available:

  • the Phillip Greenwood Fellowship in any area of clinical research.
  • up to five further fellowships in any area, with at least one fellow usually appointed in the field of cancer.
  • This year we welcome applications from clinical engineering disciplines which may include (but not exclusive to) stem cell biology, tissue engineering, 3D printing and applications from candidates willing to work in collaboration or with links to non-clinical departments.

Fellowships for nurses, midwives and allied health professionals will open later in the year. For details contact Professor Christi Deaton via
