Research Fellowships - coming soon







The BOA & Orthopaedic Research UK (ORUK) are pleased to announce a new joint research fellowship, which will open for applications later this year. This pilot scheme will award two fellowships of up to £65k for a project in any area of orthopaedics.

Research projects in any aspect of the field of orthopaedic surgery or surgical care will be considered, including basic science, diagnosis, treatment, surgical technology, logistics or audit.

Funding will be available for salary (maximum £60k) or as a stipend at UKRI levels.

Applications will be open to BOA members at any trainee grade (with an ortho NTN) and SAS surgeons. One or more proposed supervisor should be a BOA member.

The BOA and ORUK are both fully supportive of diversity and inclusion within trauma and orthopaedics and within research. We are particularly keen to promote and encourage applications from individuals that wish to undertake their research flexibly or less than full-time (minimum 0.5 FTE).

The full details of the scheme will be published later this year, with an application deadline in early 2022, and the successful fellows awarded in late Summer 2022.

Further details of the scheme are being finalised and will be publicised once available.
