Catalyst Fellowships launched to support talented child health researchers

The Catalyst Fellowships are an exciting new initiative supported by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Biomedical Research Centre aiming to build the capacity of child health researchers and enabling them to become the research leaders of the future.

The fellowship, which provides up to 18 months of salary support, will help talented individuals take the next step towards establishing themselves as independent researchers. Applications are invited from clinical and non-clinical trainees.

The Catalyst Fellowships have been spearheaded by the recently-established GOSH BRC Junior Faculty, a group that aims to support the career development of junior researchers.

This new fellowship is a reflection of the importance that GOSH and ICH place on nurturing the next generation of paediatric researchers. This funding will support junior researchers in making the transition to senior leaders and allow them to develop their careers within the world-class research environment of GOSH and ICH.

The deadline for applications is Thursday 1st March 2018.
