In October 2008, the Dental Schools Council launched a recruitment website for clinical academic jobs in UK dental schools.
www.clinicalacademicjobs.org is a non-profit website which enables job seekers to search free of charge for current clinical academic, teaching and research opportunities across the UK’s undergraduate and postgraduate dental schools.
The aim of the website is to support schools in their recruitment for dental clinical academics, whilst acting as a vital career resource for the current and future academic workforce. In addition, job seekers will have access to relevant organisations offering funding and training for clinical academic careers.
The Dental Schools Council works to improve and maintain quality in basic dental education, clinical dental training and dental research, and to facilitate sharing of experience.
Occasionally a variety of clinical academic funding sources and schemes will be posted here.
Organisations that occasionally offer funding opportunities for dental clinical academics include:
