Opportunities at the Anne Rowling Clinic for aspiring clinical researchers.

Rowling Fellowships

Rowling Fellowships are designed to enable doctors undertaking their specialty training to step away from clinical practice for a period of 1-3 years to experience clinical research, and potentially pursue a higher degree (PhD/MD). Rowling Fellows are University of Edinburgh staff, on a clinical pay scale.

Rowling Fellows undertake clinical roles in academic, and commercial, research studies and trials, such as consenting participants, performing clinical assessments and maintaining patient databases, as well as promoting, conducting and reporting research. There will be opportunities for Fellows to gain insight into, for instance, trials assessment, research governance, ethics applications, clinical epidemiology, novel molecular diagnostic tests, neuroimaging, genetics and neuropathology. The Fellows also develop skills in leadership, management and public engagement activities.

Positions will be advertised on the University of Edinburgh vacancies website. Adverts will be released at the beginning of the year to start the Autumn of the following year (Approximately 6 months lead time.)
