Posts will be advertised through Oriel in October. Applications open at 10 am on Monday, 7th October 2019. Please note that on Oriel some posts are listed under the specialty, and others under the theme. Most specialties have two posts on offer, one themed and one non-themed.

If you are interested in working in Sheffield, do get in touch with the academic lead of that specialty - details are given on the specialty-specific pages.

Please note that interviews for Sheffield ACF posts are generally held over two days in the first couple of weeks of December, probably 2nd and 4th December 2019. You need to be available to come to Sheffield if you are interested in our posts - the NIHR does not allow interviews via Skype etc. When applying for academic posts you still need to go through clinical benchmarking unless you already hold an NTN.

Some of these posts have been developed under specific themes designated by NIHR as priority areas for research. Click on the specialty you are interested in to find more information about the department and post.
