Academic Toolkit - ACT!


After completion

Start 3 years after fellowship start date


1. Consider your options for further career opportunities. Are you in a position to apply for further funding or a post doctoral fellowship? 

2. Consider any further dissemination of your PhD findings.

3. Think about the academic career pathway; discuss with your academic supervisor and your mentor whether you are positioned to maintain your academic outputs and whether you should be thinking about an NIHR ACL as a stepping stone to MRC Clinician Scientist or Wellcome Clinical Research Career Development Fellowship.  These are highly competitive but they are an important stepping stone to being an independent clinical academic leader.
