Lectureship Programme

The Stroke Association are inviting applications for our UK Lectureship Awards in the field of stroke.

Our new 2019-2024 Research Strategy maintains our commitment to building the next generation of research leaders from our previous Research Strategy by continuing our successful Lectureship Programme. The Stroke Association Lectureship programme aims to address succession and sustainability in the careers of stroke researchers. We aim to develop a collaborative multidisciplinary community in which to nurture and build upon the careers of early stage researchers, encourage more driven and high-calibre researchers into the field of stroke research, and ultimately to develop the research leaders of the future in stroke research, training and clinical excellence.

These positions will play a critical role in building a vibrant community of clinical and non-clinical stroke researchers across the UK. We welcome applications from medical professionals, basic and translational scientists, allied health professionals and nurses, psychologists, pharmacists, and other applied researchers including but not limited to: implementation scientists, health economists, digital health and computer scientists. We have six different types of award:

  • Clinical Lectureship for Nurses, Pharmacists and Allied Health Professionals
  • Senior Clinical Lectureship for Nurses, Pharmacists and Allied Health Professionals
  • Clinical Lectureship for Medical Professionals
  • Senior Clinical Lectureship for Medical Professionals
  • Non-Clinical Lectureship
  • Senior Non-Clinical Lectureship

The closing date for applications is 5pm Thursday 24 October 2019. The grants will be awarded in March 2020.
