Alzheimer’s Research UK is Europe’s largest charity funder of dementia research, funding the best biomedical research, from basic to clinical, that improves our understanding of all the causes of different dementias or improves diagnosis, prevention and treatment. Preparatory Clinical Research Fellowships are designed for promising clinically qualified researchers who are planning a career in academic medicine and developing the necessary research track record and skills to apply for longer Fellowships. Fellows will be expected to obtain the necessary research track record and skills to compete for full Clinical Fellowships through ARUK or elsewhere. The Preparatory Clinical Research Fellowship is for clinically qualified researchers, including trainee Old Age/General Psychiatrists, Neurologists, Clinical Psychologists and similar specialists, who may or may not have a PhD. For a detailed description of the skills and training you will be expected to demonstrate, please read our Early Career Researcher Framework. The prospective Preparatory Clinical Fellow should have delivered previous research project(s) with impactful outputs, such as publications and conference presentations, and demonstrate an upward trajectory. Prospective Preparatory Clinical Fellows should be starting to accumulate a tool-box of skills that will serve as a strong basis for future independent research activity, whilst being increasingly recognised for their specialist expertise.
