The Stroke Association Lectureship Programme aims to encourage the next generation of leaders in stroke research, and address issues of researcher succession and sustainability, by providing support for clinical and non-clinical lectureship positions. Eight different funding streams are now available (a new clinical reader fund has been created) to support the development and establishment of researchers at all career stages.
The lectureship funding programme is designed to enable researchers to establish themselves as leaders of high-quality research programmes, inspire the next generation of researchers through lecturing and training, and to lever-in further funds to support PhDs, post-docs and other junior research positions. The intention is to create a secure and stable source of funding for new research posts over the first four or five years, after which the host university is expected to continue support.
