Call for Applications

As part of the NIHR School for Social Care Research’s commitment to developing research capacity in adult social care, we are inviting applications for Individual Research Career Development Awards.

Applicants can request funding of up to £50,000 to support their career development with a focus on adult social care research.

With support from the NIHR Academy, we are seeking high-quality applications for research career development awards from individuals who have a commitment to developing the evidence base to improve adult social care practice in England.

This may include individuals already working in social care in research, education or practice, or people with research expertise in an aligned sector, topic area or discipline who wish to bring their skills and experience to adult social care. We are keen to support professionals working in adult social care who wish to develop their research capacity, as well as individuals who are already in research careers.
