Strategic Academic Recruitment Programme

Backed by significant investment, the aim of the Strategic Academic Recruitment (StAR) Programme is to transfer impactful research discoveries to clinical practice more quickly for the benefit of patients.

This latest phase of the programme embraces that commitment by offering researchers in the relevant subject areas a uniquely supportive and flexible environment, in conjunction with a highly competitive remuneration package.
