The NIHR Global Research Professorships scheme is open to researchers and methodologists from all professional backgrounds within health, public health and social care. Candidates must be able to demonstrate an outstanding research record of clinical and applied health, public health or care research. Their research must effectively translate to improving the health and welfare of people in low and middle income countries.

Internal Application

If you wish to be considered as a nominee for these rounds, you must submit an internal application to IRAMS by the deadline, likely to be Sept/Oct 2024. Internal applications details and forms via the University of Oxford co-ordinated bids webpage.


A generous support package, including 3 support posts, for 5 years.


Candidates will have spent no more than five years at their current level of seniority at the time of application (whether as a Professor, Reader, Senior Lecturer/Fellow, Clinician Scientist, Group Leader or similar). The University runs an internal selection process to identify Oxford’s candidates.
