The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) School for Primary Care Research is a partnership between nine leading academic centres for primary care research in England. Our main aims are to increase the evidence base for primary care practice through high quality research and strategic leadership, and to build capacity in primary care with a well established training programme.
SPCR IV launches 2021
Established in 2006
Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Primary Health Care
These awards provide funding to cover the costs of a 24 month (if taken fulltime) fellowship at one of the SPCR members. Applicants should have a strong academic record and wish to develop a career in primary care research.
The aim of these fellowships is for the fellow to follow an independent research project, publish their research and prepare grant applications to secure future funding (e.g. an NIHR fellowship).The SPCR would particularly welcome applications from allied health professionals. Distinctive to the current SPCR programme is the aim to work more broadly with the primary care research sector.
Successful applicants are expected to start their fellowship in April 2022. Previous SPCR fellowship award holders are not eligible to apply for a second award.
NIHR Three Research Schools' Mental Health Research Fellowships
The NIHR Schools for Primary Care Research (SPCR), Public Health Research (SPHR) and Social Care Research (SSCR) (“three Schools”) have joined together in a unique collaboration between leading academic centres in England to collaborate on a programme of work funded through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR):
Improving mental health and wellbeing in underserved populations through collaborative research
A key aspect of the programme is building research capacity. To develop a critical mass of mental health research in underserved communities it is essential to build strong capacity with the expertise and local knowledge needed to make an impact.
The School for Primary Care Research is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
