The British Association for Surgery of the Knee (BASK) and Orthopaedic Research UK (ORUK) announce 2-year research fellowship

The British Association for Surgery of the Knee (BASK) and Orthopaedic Research UK (ORUK) are pleased to announce a new 2-year research fellowship of up to £130k. The funding aims to deliver a programme of high-quality knee-related research and to develop the career of future research leaders in knee surgery.

The programme is aimed at individuals with an interest in research into any knee area. This role may be delivered full or part time, and will lead to the award of an MD, PhD or equivalent higher degree, in partnership with a UK university, along with high impact papers in recognised journals.

Applications close on Tuesday 12th May 2023 at 12pm and the role is planned to commence by no later than August 2024.

The BASK Executive Committee said:

“BASK are thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity for knee research funding in partnership with ORUK. BASK are committed to both innovation in knee surgery and the promotion of evidence-based knee surgery. This research fellowship will hopefully deliver on both of these counts as well as encouraging the next generation of knee researchers.”

Dr Arash Angadji, CEO of Orthopaedic Research UK, added:

“The partnership with the British Association for Surgery of the Knee (BASK) clearly demonstrates our long-term commitment to investing in our future movement. With an increasing number of people requiring orthopaedic interventions to keep mobile and pain-free, this research fellowship will enable our organisations to identify exceptional talents interested in advancing knee research. The programme will support researchers to become future MSK leaders, who will accelerate innovation and help reduce the burden of poor MSK health.”
