RCoA Macintosh Professorship

The Royal College of Anaesthetists has established a number of initiatives to foster research in anaesthesia, critical care and pain management. Their aim is to encourage experienced researchers as well as those who are in the early stages of developing a research portfolio. Macintosh Professorships are aimed at established clinical or laboratory researchers who are already performing at a high level. Their purpose is to recognise and disseminate the work of the award holders and facilitate their progress in the academic world.

Recipients of the award will have a national or international reputation in their field. Their curriculum vitae will be consistent with an individual who is performing at, or is on the cusp of, professorial level through research, innovation, and leadership. Those who show equivalent excellence in teaching and education will also be eligible for the award.

Macintosh Professorships are awarded for one year (normally the College academic year). Recipients are required, within that time or soon after, to give a keynote lecture at a meeting organised by the Royal College of Anaesthetists or its associated Faculties, other related organisations and specialist societies. The lecture is commemorated by the presentation of a certificate.

Applications for Macintosh Professorships are open to Fellows and Members of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and other clinicians and scientists involved in anaesthesia, critical care and pain management within the United Kingdom. Applications will be considered by the Board of the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia and expert external advisers.

The College welcomes nominations from national and/or specialist societies in Anaesthesia within the UK. If successful, the title of the Professorship will reflect a joint award from the College and nominating body.
