NIHR CLAHRC Greater Manchester research secondments

The secondments are available part-time for UK registered nurses and allied health professionals (AHPs) working in the community in the NHS in England who hold a relevant 2:1 or 1:1 degree and do not already hold a research Master’s degree or PhD. Funding covers 30 days salary backfill to the value of £7500 and £1000 educational programme fees.

The purpose of the programme is to provide an introduction to research for those registered nurses and AHPs interested in pursuing a clinical academic career in the future. The programme comprises 30 days between March and September 2016 which will be spent within the NIHR CLAHRC Greater Manchester; five days will be spent participating in a structured educational programme with the other secondees

The programme will be tailored to specific learning needs and interests, support personal development and provide opportunities to network with others with similar interests. At the end of the secondment, secondees will be required to write a short report and give an oral presentation reflecting on how their research skills have developed over the period of the secondment.
