Job description

Job summary

As a world leading centre for research and training, Imperial College London is keen to attract and cultivate the most promising clinical academic researchers. The Imperial College London Faculty of Medicine is one of the largest in Europe and is at the forefront of translating biomedical discoveries into patient benefit. We deliver outstanding research and impact from our wide-ranging discovery and translational science programmes. Our doctoral training schemes immerse students and researchers in world-leading scientific discovery and its translation.

Applications are invited from exceptional medical graduates who demonstrate a commitment to a research career and aspire to become the next generation of clinical academic leaders to join our prestigious PhD Fellowship Programmes.

Opportunities are available through a number of funding streams including; our Wellcome Trust Clinical PhD 4i programme and the British Heart Foundation AI in cardiovascular science PhD scheme.

The Wellcome Trust Imperial Immunity, Inflammation, Infection and Informatics (4i) programme offers an unparalleled portfolio of internationally competitive PhD research fellowships focussing on the strengths of Imperial College London that are relevant to all major health problems.  Our unique 4i scheme enables early career success by placing talented individuals with strong intellectual achievements in a supportive environment.  The scheme provides fellows with cutting-edge research projects under experienced supervision, regardless of the potential clinical specialty of the applicant. Up to four fellowships will be available to start in Summer/Autumn 2021 and must be taken up by the end of 2021. 

The British Heart Foundation has pioneered initiatives to bring together cardiovascular and non-biological science with their Centres of Excellence scheme. This year BHF have funded a £4M Centre of Excellence at Imperial to harness the interactions between cardiovascular science, bioengineering, advanced imaging and AI.  There are   up to 1 PhD research fellowships available for candidates interested in developing research around AI in cardiovascular science within multidisciplinary teams based in our Imperial Hammersmith and White City Campus to produce new therapies and diagnostic tools, to start in Summer/Autumn 2021.

Duties and responsibilities

Successful candidates will be selected on the basis of academic potential to reach the highest standards of scientific research, regardless of clinical specialty. Appointed Fellows will be matched to projects and supervisors during exploratory discussions with our PhD Programmes selection Panel. We aim to achieve a comprehensive spread of fellows across our leading research areas and anticipate appointing only one fellow per research group. Candidates may already have an area of research, which would be reviewed by the Panel, but this is not necessary. We are particularly keen to enable clinicians with an interest and background in Artificial Intelligence to apply. Successful applicants appointed to do an AI related research project will be supported to connect with our new Doctoral Training Centre in AI for Health.

There is a single application process and eligibility criteria for Wellcome 4i and AI in cardiovascular science. Candidates can submit one application only, however, please highlight if you have an interest in the AI programme in cardiovascular science. This will be discussed at the time of interview.

Essential requirements

Applicants must be GMC registered, fully qualified medical doctors in training in the UK, and at Core Training level or above, in any specialty. Candidates should show evidence of outstanding academic and/or outstanding research achievements, as well as evidence of participation in research.

Further information

The Fellowships will be full-time and fixed term for three years. The funding covers clinical salary, PhD registration fees at the UK/EU rate, College fees, associated project costs and general training costs. Applicants must be GMC registered, fully qualified medical doctors in training in the UK, and at Core Training level or above, in any specialty.

Applications should be accompanied by a CV, which should be uploaded with the online application form in the Job Applicant section of the Imperial College London website.

Further details about the Fellowships and a job description can be found on the CATO website (Clinical Academic Training Office).

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level. http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal-research
