The Scientific Foundation Board (SFB) is the charitable funding body of the Royal College of GPs. It awards grants for research projects whose findings will be of direct relevance to the care of patients in the general practice setting.
The SFB is now looking to recruit two new members (an academic GP and a non-clinical health service researcher) to join the Board in late 2017 or early 2018.
Baseline time commitment:
• Review of annual grant applications of up to £20,000 between July and September and attendance at annual SFB meeting
• Ad hoc review of grant applications as directed by the SFB Chair, throughout the year
• Standard tenure is three years
• Reimbursement: Travel expenses for attendance at the SFB annual meeting at Euston Square, London.
New members will be expected to be available for the SFB meeting on 29 November 2017, and to score grant applications within a timeframe of one month from appointment in late September.
The deadline for applications is 31 July at 5pm. For more information, please contact SFB@rcgp.org.uk or telephone 020 3188 7594.
