Joint BOA/ORUK Research Fellowship

The BOA and ORUK have a shared goal to increase orthopaedic research by promoting the development of research skills within the specialty.

The BOA & Orthopaedic Research UK (ORUK) are pleased to announce a new joint research fellowship, with the goal of developing a pipeline of research-active orthopaedic surgeons. This pilot scheme will award two fellowships of up to £65k for a project in any area of orthopaedics and is now open for applications.

Research projects in any aspect of the field of orthopaedic surgery or surgical care will be considered, including basic science, diagnosis, treatment, surgical technology, logistics or audit. The research can be self-contained or part of a wider research programme and should be integral to the applicant pursuing a higher degree.

Funding will be available for salary (maximum £60k) or as a stipend at UKRI levels.

The BOA and ORUK are both fully supportive of diversity and inclusion within trauma and orthopaedics and within research. We are particularly keen to promote and encourage applications from individuals that wish to undertake their research flexibly or less than full-time (minimum 0.5 FTE).

Apply by 24 March 2022.
