Evidence Synthesis Ireland fellowship scheme 2019

Applications are now invited from suitable, highly motivated candidates for an Evidence Synthesis Ireland (ESI) Fellowship. There are a number of systematic reviews available for succesful applicants including two from the Cochrane Effective Practice and Organisation of Care (EPOC) review group.

The overall objective of the Fellowship is to give the Fellow the opportunity to learn about evidence synthesis in general, as well as to develop the practical skills of how to plan, design, conduct and report an evidence synthesis.

The ESI Fellowship scheme involves placing Fellows (in a virtual environment) with experienced evidence synthesis centres and review teams in Ireland and internationally. Fellows will receive structured theoretical training from ESI and join an existing or new review team being led by experienced reviewers within the respective centre/group to gain hands-on evidence synthesis experience in a high-quality environment. Fellows will also receive one-to-one mentorship from a designated mentor from the review centre/group. This will afford the Fellow the opportunity of networking with a range of stakeholders in evidence synthesis and will provide direct experience for ESI Fellows in the conduct of evidence synthesis projects that ultimately inform decision making for clinical practice, health services and heath policy.
