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 human chronic pain.

The Prize 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 £18,000 each year, together with a small budget to cover consumables.

The research grants may be in respect of projects or salaries, but equipment will not be funded. Grants previously awarded have varied, 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 only. Closing date for applications is Wednesday 15 January 2014.
