British Society for Heart Failure

BSH Research fellowship and AWARDS

We are delighted to invite applications for the BSH Fellowship awards 2021-2023.

The BSH Fellowship award programme, judged by non-conflicted BSH Board members, is highly valued and competitive. Previous winners have not only gone on to achieve higher degrees but subsequent awards, accolades, and further funding grants.

We are very proud of the multidisciplinary membership of the society.  In recognition of this we have funding available for 3 awards: 2 medical and 1 non-medical; open to nurses, allied health professionals or scientists. The award will be made in open competition. Any graduate (UK resident) is eligible for the award with no limitation as to healthcare profession, although the applicant and their supervisor must be BSH members.

The award will cover the salary and associated administrative costs of a research fellow for two years, awarded directly from BSH to the recognised institute of higher education hosting the researcher. The proposed research programme should be related to heart failure broadly, with an emphasis on clinical relevance.

The application should describe a proposed research programme that will last two years and will lead to the potential award of a higher degree, usually either an MSc, MD or PhD. Applications should be no more than 1500 words and accompanied by a current curriculum vitae plus a covering letter from supervisor and institution.

Applications from BSH members only (applicant and supervisor).

The winner of the award will be announced at the BSH Autumn Meeting, taking place on 1st-3rd December 2021, with a view to the winning entrant taking up their post in 2022.

These awards are intended to support and inspire new talented researchers, dedicated to improving the lives of people with heart failure and further underpin our vision, to make heart failure a national priority.

Application deadline – November 12th, 2021

Winners announced – December 2nd, 2021
