End of November, triennially awarded


One fellowship of £30,000 is awarded triennially, funded by the Ritchie Trust. Applicants should be Fellows or Members of the College and be below consultant grade. The fellowship may be held in any clinical subject. It could be used to support work for a higher degree, although this is not essential.

Payment of this award is usually given in three equal instalments of £10,000.

The successful candidate will be free to seek an honorary clinical appointment.

The usual closing date for applications is November and interviews may be arranged thereafter. The successful applicant will be advised by the end of January and the Fellowship normally commences in the following August.
