The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has opened a call in healthcare technologies, specifically aimed at those looking at switching discipline.
This discipline hopping call is aimed at mathematicians, engineers and physical scientists who wish to experience life in a healthcare-related department or non-academic environment (eg, NHS trust), or to those in healthcare disciplines who wish to spend time learning from physical scientists.
The call aims to facilitate knowledge transfer, and develop networks across disciplines, enabling researchers to tackle the Healthcare Technologies Grand Challenge in a thorough, holisitc way - combining the expertise of physical scientists with healthcare experts and technologists from across the sector.
The Research Council particularly encourages applications from the following people.
This is a real opportunity to build cross-disciplinary connections, and to experience another side of your sector. Well worth exploring as a route to high-impact research!
Funding available: flexible according to demand.
