The closing deadline for applications to the 2023 NIHR Applied Research Collaboration East of England Mental Health Fellowship is Wednesday 30th November.
Who is the fellowship for?
This fellowship is for people based in the East of England who work in an area of mental health, including mental health practitioners, clinicians, NHS managers, health and social care practitioners and those who work in education or third-sector settings. The Mental Health fellowship is aimed at people who are keen to develop an understanding of the research environment and to develop skills in research methodology, service redesign and change management. The focus is on local applied research and evaluation projects, building local capacity for evidence-informed practice, and facilitating networking across health and social care.
What will the fellowship involve?
The successful fellows will pursue an 18-month supervised project in an area of mental health. Fellows will spend 12-months on a mental health research project, attend bespoke educational seminars, followed by 6-months working on a mental health implementation project. This fellowship is a collaboration with the Eastern Academic Health Science Network who will be delivering the implementation project.
