NJR researcher

We run a rolling NJR Research Fellowship programme which is delivered in partnership with Orthopaedic Research UK and the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

We welcome applications from orthopaedic trainees who wish to contribute to the analysis of NJR data by undertaking a period of independent research into topics related to joint replacement surgery.

The fellowship is worth up to £70,000 per annum for a maximum two-year period.

We look forward to receiving applications from potential new fellows who can help to maximise the value of the use of data in new ways to help drive improvements and enhance service quality in orthopaedics.
