Opportunities for graduate Band 5, 6 or 7 NMAHPs interested in developing research skills and knowledge.
Internships are short-duration awards for individuals with little or no research experience.
The Oxford NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is supporting 5 research internships for Nurses, Midwives and Allied Health Professionals (NMAHPs) to have some protected time to develop research knowledge and skills.
The award covers salary costs for the days undertaking the internship away from clinical practice, and typically lasts between 3 and 6 months.
If you are interested in exploring clinical research in your current role in practice, then this internship may offer you time to do so. The internship can be used for any of the following:
- develop a research, quality improvement, service improvement, audit, or service evaluation idea into a proposal.
- conduct a quality improvement, service improvement, audit, or service evaluation project that has already been designed and has approval.
- analysis of existing data and to write a paper for publication in a peer review journal.
- conduct a literature review and write up for publication in a peer review journal.
- use data from practice and devise an implementation plan with results.
You will be offered individual research development and will receive 1:1 research mentoring from experienced researchers during the internship. Clear outcomes will be used to measure the success of the internship.
The internship is 0.4 WTE (15 hrs per week) for 6 months from September 2023 until February 2024. It is expected that you will continue a proportion of your clinical role during the internship. You will need to have identified a project before applying as well as a statement from your current line manager agreeing to support you in applying for this internship.
