Doctoral and Advanced Fellowship Programmes

The NIHR Fellowships support individuals with the potential and on a trajectory to become future leaders in NIHR research.

Now with increased flexibility and options to include clinical time, they support people at various points of their development from initial pre-doctoral training to senior post-doctoral research.
