Launch of NIHR Population Health Career Scientist Award

The NIHR Population Health Career Scientist Award (PHCSA) has been launched today 7 October 2021. This award is being delivered jointly by the NIHR Public Health Research Programme and the NIHR Academy and can be applied to through an Advanced Fellowship Round 7 application process.

The NIHR Population Health Career Scientist Award (PHCSA) is a UK-wide initiative to enable senior researchers to make the next step to Reader/Professor level in their host institutions. While the aim of the PHCSA will build on initiatives that supported the transition of senior researchers to Reader/Professor level, there is also a desire to attract researchers from outside the specific discipline of public health to include the wide range of disciplines which undertake research in areas which impact the determinants of health (e.g. environmental science, mathematics, architecture, engineering, geography).

Further support: webinar

An introductory Population Health Career Scientist Award webinar will be held on 10 November 2021 11:00-12:00. To register for the webinar please email with your name, title and organisation by Friday 29th October 2021. If you are a potential applicant please include a one page summary. The one-page summary should include a brief CV, details of research interests and any questions you would like to ask or points of clarity.
