CRUK fully funded Clinical Research Fellowships at the Francis Crick Institute in partnership with BCI
Application deadline: 14 November 2017
Interviews: 6 February 2018
Start Date: September 2018
Applications are invited for Crick-Cancer Research UK and Crick doctoral fellowships for clinicians at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). These fellowships provide an opportunity for outstanding clinicians to perform innovative biomedical discovery research for three years while following the Crick’s clinical PhD programme.
The Crick carries out multidisciplinary research dedicated to unravelling the scientific mechanisms of living organisms, helping us to understand why disease develops and find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses. One of the Crick’s aims is to provide an environment to advance the understanding of cancer at the most fundamental level and to speed application of this knowledge for therapeutic and diagnostic patient benefit.
Fellows will be based at the Crick, supported by teams comprising a Crick research group leader, at least one supervisor from one of Crick’s five clinical PhD programme partners (including Barts Cancer Institute) and at least one clinician.
Barts Cancer Institute have the following collaborative projects available:
- Cancer outcome in standard and immune checkpoint blockade therapies. Dinis Calado (Crick), Jude Fitzgibbon (Barts Cancer Institute/QMUL) and Peter Johnson (University of Southampton)
- Identification of novel targets to inhibit autophagy in advanced pancreatic cancer. Sharon Tooze (Crick), Christopher Heeschen (Barts Cancer Institute, QMUL) and David Propper (Barts and The London NHS Trust)
The Crick are looking for talented and motivated clinicians from all medical and surgical specialities who are passionate about research, have a strong academic track record and hold full GMC registration or equivalent.
