Exciting Fellowship Opportunity!

Applications for the 2021/22 Peter Mount Research and Innovation Pump-Prime Awards are now open! It is a great opportunity for an out of programme experience (OOPE), giving time to focus on developing a research project and prepare funding applications.

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) and the Fellowship Academy in the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health at the University of Manchester have created these awards to prepare excellent candidates for externally funded clinical PhD fellowships or other research and innovation funding especially those individuals with good CVs but no existing opportunity for protected research time.

The fellowship lasts six months. As well as the fellowship salary, the award includes provision for a small amount of consumables funding.

Chris (our PRIME co-chair) did this fellowship and highly recommends this amazing opportunity. We are more than happy to help with the application form or firming up a project - please get in touch with us here at PRIME (

Deadline is fast approaching - 17:00, 16th July 2021!

Guidance and application forms are attached to this post. For informal enquiries about the award, please contact
