Dear colleagues,

We are currently recruiting for a fully funded PhD studentship in the area of health entrepreneurship, at Anglia Ruskin University's Business School, in Cambridge, UK. Applications are open until March 5.

I would be thankful if you could circulate this information to any potential candidates. Please find more information below.

Many thanks in advance,

Enhancing healthcare innovation through entrepreneurial action

Medical professionals are well-positioned to identify and act upon entrepreneurial opportunities to improve others' health due to their in-depth knowledge of health problems. Yet, the path between idea and reality is far from straightforward. Whilst the UK National Health Service (NHS) has made great strides in recent years to facilitate a culture of innovation, medical professionals still face a challenging environment for accessing funding and promoting the adoption of healthcare inventions.

The overall aim of this PhD project is to promote a deeper understanding of the processes by which 'health entrepreneurs' working in the NHS secure access to resources and navigate the path from invention to adoption. The successful applicant will apply mixed methods to study the Clinical Entrepreneur Programme (CEP) – a workforce development scheme from NHS England and Health Education England aimed at developing the entrepreneurial aspirations and skills of medical professionals.

The project will build on Anglia Ruskin's institutional focus on the medical technology (MedTech) sector. It is expected that the project will bear practical implications for the development of the MedTech sector from within the NHS, and of innovations that allow the NHS to be cost efficient while having a positive impact on the lives of patients. Furthermore, it is also expected that the project will shed light on the obstacles to exploitation of radical healthcare innovations that diverge from the institutional status quo in the NHS.


To apply, candidates will need:

  • a 1st class bachelor degree from a UK institution (or equivalent)
  • OR a 2:1 bachelor degree from a UK institution (or equivalent) and a Masters at Merit level or above (or equivalent)
  • AND an IELTS score of 6.5 with 5.5 in each component, or equivalent test recognised by Anglia Ruskin University (if English is not the first language).
