Early Career Opportunities

At the CTI, we recognise the importance of nurturing and fully supporting our future scientific leaders. Our goal is to help bright researchers gain externally-funded fellowships. A personal award from the MRC, Wellcome Trust, NIHR or equivalent is the best possible launch pad for a future independent research career.

As such, we are a dedicated to support and develop current and potential externally funded fellows. The CTI provides bespoke one-to-one advice and guidance on CVs and applications, together with preparation for fellowship interviews.

The CTI,  together with its extensive collaborators, creates a network that brings together our externally funded fellows, both clinical and non-clinical, as well as drawing on the experiences of senior academics who sit on external funding panels and crucially, those who have held fellowships themselves. There is nothing better than being able to speak to someone who has already been through the fellowship process.

The CTI will be of particular interest to you if you are:

- in the final year of your PhD with a strong CV and planning an early career postdoctoral fellowship;

- an academic clinical fellow or an academic clinical lecturer;

- a postdoctoral researcher planning an external fellowship application;

- an existing external fellowship holder who is working out how to apply for the next
