SoR members invited to apply for £225,000 Fellowship

13 September 2013

Two clinical training fellowships, worth up to £225,000, are up for grabs. 

Diagnostic and therapeutic radiographers are invited to apply to the second round of funding, which is being offered through the Prostate Cancer UK/College of Radiographers Clinical Research Training Fellowship. 

Two high calibre radiographers will be selected to carry out a programme of research in the area of prostate cancer. The work will lead to a PhD. 

To apply for the fellowship, applicants must be full members of the SCoR and, if successfully awarded, the fellow must remain as a member for the duration of the award. The post can either be a two or three year post, or up to six years part time.

Earlier this year, radiographer James Stirling became the first research fellow under the joint programme. Based at the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre, James’ research looks at the technology used in identifying further treatment for men with recurrent prostate cancer. 

The data collected will undergo textural analysis – a new method which allows researchers to get more precise and detailed information about the extent of the cancer within the prostate. The research will aims to give greater hope to those suffering from recurring prostate cancer.

Talking about the training fellowship, SCoR professional officer Rachel Harris said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for two members of the Society to undertake a valuable piece of research, fully funded. 

“Thanks to Prostate Cancer UK, and support from the Movember Foundation, the Society is able to contribute to the growing body of research which, ultimately, will give hope to those diagnosed with prostate cancer and their families.”
