Support for post-doctoral researchers

The NIHR Advanced Clinical and Practitioner Academic Fellowship (ACAF) supports post-doctoral researchers to develop their academic career while developing their health or care career. It is part of the ICA programme

Applicants for an ACAF may:

  • have recently completed or soon be awarded a PhD but have yet to establish themselves as an independent researcher
  • be starting to establish themselves as an independent researcher
  • already be established as an independent researcher but have yet to be recognised as an international leader in their field
  • be seeking to re-establish their research career following a significant career break
  • be seeking to re-establish their research career following time back in health or care practice

ACAFs are available to health and social care professionals (excluding doctors or dentists). Applicants must hold registration with one of the ICA approved regulatory bodies or have plans in place to hold the required registration by the proposed award start date.
