Get involved in research – opportunities for NHS staff in Manchester

The NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is offering the chance for healthcare workers to experience what participating in research activities is like through short, flexible 4-6 week taster placements. The scheme also offers employers backfill funding to release you from work for the duration.

The programme offers the opportunity to:

  • Kick start a career or further study in a clinical research environment
  • Work closely with clinical academics in delivering a short research project
  • Learn more about how research is conducted within the NHS.

The placements are open to a wide range of NHS staff from different clinical settings, including:

  • Nurses, midwives, pharmacists and all Allied Health Professionals, including (but not limited to) physiotherapists, audiologists and dietitians
  • No previous research experience is required
  • Any grade, but priority given to grade 6 and below
  • An opportunity to learn how research can support the NHS to improve patient outcomes.

Full details of the scheme can be found online, along with information on how to apply.

The deadline for applications is 6th November 2017.
