RCBC (Research Building Capacity Collaboration) Wales is pleased to announce funding for First into Research (FiR) Fellowships in Nursing, Midwifery, Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions to commence 1 April 2019. Applications are invited from eligible registered health professionals for up to six RCBCWales fellowships funded via Health and Care Research Wales. Fellowships will be awarded to the collaborating Universities.
RCBC Wales will fund the First into Research Fellowships for one day a week for 12 months. The Fellowships are targeted at newcomers to research or those wishing to develop confidence in research, to work on projects seeking answers to questions relevant to Nursing, Midwifery, the Allied Health Professions and Pharmacists in the specified fields. Projects must be achievable in the timescale and may cover a wide spectrum of activity ranging from institutional strategies to more discrete individual research.
The FiR Fellowship funds are intended to contribute to the day release of the Fellow from their place of work. Fellows will be supervised by experienced researchers and may have access to research methods training with their host university. It is a requirement of the award that all Fellows will become members of the Community of Scholars (CoS) and attend CoS study days. Fellows will be required to present their research at the conclusion of the scheme at a Community of Scholars event.
