British Oxygen Company Research Grant

In 1958, the British Oxygen Company (BOC), made a charitable donation in support of anaesthesia research. The BOC Chair of Anaesthesia Fund was created using this donation and is a subsidiary charity of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. The object of the charity is the endowment of a research fellowship in a department of Anaesthesia. On behalf of the Royal College of Anaesthetists, the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA) is inviting applications for this grant.

The RCoA wishes to utilise these funds in support of an anaesthetist who is working towards a senior fellowship or developing a credible application for a Chair in Anaesthesia (or related specialties) in the next 5 years. Applications from basic scientists with a similar ambition are also invited.

Funding of £60,000 per annum is available. This can support the costs of research sessions, projects or infrastructure. The grant is available for 4 years (reviewed after 2 years).

Applicants must demonstrate an existing research record, the support of a senior mentor/supervisor, a credible research proposal and evidence of a supportive research environment.

The deadline for applications is 8 am on Monday 16 November 2015.
