Sheffield Clinical Research Academy

The Sheffield Clinical Research Academy (CRA) will enable Sheffield to establish the capacity necessary to undertake high quality applied clinical research, with an expected increase in grant capture from NIHR and other national peer reviewed funding programmes.

The CRA will enable clinical NHS staff from Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust and Sheffield Health and Social Care Trust with an interest in becoming research leaders in their field to be released from clinical duties for one day per week (i.e. 2 PAs for medical staff) over 2 years.

Throughout their time as a Sheffield CRA Fellow, dedicated and structured support will be made available from existing infrastructure and methodologists across all the involved organisations. For their research day, fellows will be hosted within ScHARR or other UoS Departments undertaking applied health research if more appropriate and mutually agreed.

The deadline for the third round of applications is 1pm on Wednesday 11th July 2018.

Full details on applying to be a Sheffield CRA Fellow can be found in the guidelines and application form. The report from the round 1 CRA and their case studies are also available to view and download.
