Research grants on offer from the Pain Relief Foundation

The Pain Relief Foundation, based at University Hospital Aintree, has announced a PhD Studentship and grants to fund research on the mechanisms and/or relief of chronic pain.

The PhD Studentship will enable a young graduate to embark on a research career in human chronic pain. The three-year award will provide tuition fees totalling £17,500 each year, together with a small budget to cover consumables.

Applications should include a supervisor’s CV and complete details of the proposed project, with full costings, and two academic referees.

The research grants may be in respect of projects, equipment or salaries. Grants previously awarded have varied – starting from £10,000 each rising to £30,000. Applications from early career researchers are particularly encouraged.

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 by email, by mail from Pain Relief Foundation, Clinical Sciences Centre, University Hospital Aintree, Liverpool, L9 7AL, or telephone 0151 529 5820. Closing date for applications is Thursday 28 February 2013.
