The Pain Relief Foundation, based at University Hospital Aintree, has announced a Prize PhD Studentship prize and grants to fund research on the mechanisms or relief of human chronic pain.
The PhD Studentship is to enable a young graduate to embark on a research career in human chronic pain.
Applications are invited from universities, academic institutes and other potential project supervisors for this prestigious studentship.
The award will be tenable for three years and will carry a tax-free stipend and tuition fees totalling £16,250 in the first year with increases in years two and three.
In addition, there will be a small budget available to cover consumables. The total grant is unlikely to exceed £58,000 over three years.
Applications should include a supervisor’s CV and complete details of the proposed project and two academic referees.
The research grants may be in respect of projects, equipment, salaries etc. Grants previously awarded have varied starting from £10,000 each rising to £20,000 each.
Applications will be particularly welcomed from people in the early stages of their research careers. The grants may be held in the Pain Relief Foundations’ Pain Research Institute in Liverpool, or at other approved centres.
Application forms and further information for both the PhD Studentship or the research grants are available from David Emsley, Administrator, Pain Relief Foundation, Clinical Sciences Centre, University Hospital Aintree, Liverpool, L9 7AL or telephone 0151 529 5820 or fax 0151 529 5821.
