Dundee Discovery Fellowship Programme

Dundee Discovery Fellowship Programme

The Dundee Discovery Fellowship Programme, is a PhD programme for clinicians, hosted jointly by the College of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing and the College of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To train clinicians in research methods and practice by performing well-supervised, high-quality research projects at the forefront of international science.

  • To inform and train clinicians in the theory, practice, capabilities and limitations of modern scientific techniques.

  • To train clinicians in the generic skills of scientific research including experimental design, data analysis, statistics, literature survey, computer and communication skills and teamwork.

  • To develop an understanding of how research can be harnessed to address problems of human health.

The programme capitalises on strong basic science research, together with clinical excellence and a commitment to clinical excellence and drug discovery. Thus this programme provides an unrivalled training opportunity, founded on the needs of junior clinicians in training.

The Dundee Discovery Fellowship scheme is underpinned by five themes where strong links exist between basic and clinical research in Dundee, namely cardiovascular and diabetes, neuroscience, cancer, inflammation and immunity, and drug metabolism and drug discovery.

There are no current Discovery Fellowship Programme opportunities in the University of Dundee. If you are interested in undertaking a PhD, please contact a Project Investigator in your area of interest to discuss.
