Academic Clinical Fellowships - apply
how to apply for an Academic Clinical Fellowship (ACF) at Oxford
ACFs in Oxford are usually advertised on the Oriel website. They are also listed by the NIHR Academy.
There are application rounds each autumn and, on occasion, a small number of posts may be re-advertised later, in the following calendar year.
Full information about postgraduate training locally shows on the Health Education England Thames Valley pages.
- NIHR Academy pages. (Please note: If you do not hold an NTN or Deanery Reference Number (DRN), you will need to go through national clinical selection for the specialty/grade.)

APPLYING FOR FUNDS TOWARDS YOUR RESEARCH WHILST IN OXFORD
During an ACF post you are likely to require funding towards conference attendance and research expenses such as consumables.
Our ACFs are eligible for OUCAGS' own funding towards conference and research expenses (see Our ACFs for details).
There are also other relevant funding schemes, such as the Oxfordshire Health Services Research Committee (OHSRC) Grant.
National funding bodies have a number of applicable schemes, too. We provide guidance on these to our academic doctors.
