SLMS/Faculty Level Job Opportunities
Clinician Scientist Group Leaders at the Francis Crick Institute
The Francis Crick Institute is a new discovery biomedical research institute in central London. The institute is an innovative partnership between Cancer Research UK, the UK Medical Research Council, the Wellcome Trust and three of the UK’s leading universities, Imperial College London, King’s College London and University College London. For more details on the Crick’s strategy, with links to that of our partner universities, visit www.crick.ac.uk/strategy/.
Central to the Crick’s mission is the development of collaborative and multi-disciplinary approaches, encompassing clinical, biological, and physical sciences. We are looking to build our community of medical researchers by joint recruitment of early career independent researchers with our partner universities.
In this round we are looking to recruit clinician scientists who have completed general and/or specialist training in accordance with the requirements of the GMC or have equivalent national medical registration outside the UK, and who wish to set up an independent research program at the Crick linked to a cognate department at Imperial, King’s or UCL.
Successful candidates will be appointed to the university department, but establish their main research base at the Crick for six years, during which time the Crick will provide core-funded research support positions, PhD studentships, consumables, laboratory space and access to state-of- the-art technology facilities.
Details on how to apply can be found at: https://www.crick.ac.uk/clinical-group-leader-application
Application will consist of: application form; complete CV, current and proposed research; long term vision; referee details.
Applications from candidates with a PhD and postdoctoral experience should be submitted via email to: Clinicalemail@example.com
Informal enquiries about the Francis Crick Institute or the application procedure can be made through: Clinicalfirstname.lastname@example.org
More experienced clinically qualified researchers in biomedical science are also invited to contact us at the above address to discuss potential opportunities.

- Funding Opportunities
Clinical Research and Development Committee (CRDC) - FAST TRACK Grants Scheme
The next deadline for the fast track grants scheme is at 5pm Friday 1st November 2018.
The scheme is a collaboration between the BRC and the UCLH Charitable Trustees. It provides opportunities to apply throughout the year, targeting UCLH/UCL investigators working at all points along the translational pathway. Small awards of up to £40,000 are made to enable researchers to assemble pilot data on which to build larger grant applications to external funding bodies.
The scheme will have a particular focus on experimental medicine related to the BRC. Subsequently, it will consider pre-clinical proposals and later phase research proposals where alignment with the BRC’s broader goals of translation can be clearly demonstrated.
To apply for CRDC funds the main applicant must be a UCLH/UCL investigator and work must be carried out on one of the UCLH sites. These sites include:
- University College Hospital (UCH)
- Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and Obstetric Hospital (EGA)
- National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN)
- Eastman Dental Hospital
Staff working at the following sites are not eligible to apply:
- Royal Free and Whittington Campuses
- GOS Institute of Child Health/Great Ormond Street Hospital
- Institute of Ophthalmology/Moorfields Eye Hospital
- Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital/Stanmore Campus
Proposals will be particularly welcomed from applicants whose work is in line with the experimental medicine strategies of one or more of the BRC’s Themes in Cancer; Neurological diseases; Dementia; Cardiovascular; Inflammation, Immunity and Immunotherapeutics; Mental Health; Hearing and Deafness, Oral Health and Dentistry; Obesity; Healthcare Engineering and Imaging, and; Healthcare informatics, genomics, omics and data science.
Although open to all grades of staff the fast track scheme is highly appropriate for new Principal Investigators requiring support to build their programme of research. Individuals can only hold/be named as co-investigator on a Fast Track grant once in every three years. We strongly encourage applications from early career researchers with new ideas to pump prime larger studies.
Applications for Fast Track funding are considered by a Committee, which meets twice a year. The meeting following the November deadline will be in Spring 2019 (actual date to be confirmed). If approved, projects may be started immediately. All Fast Track proposals must have the clear support of at least one BRC Programme Director.
Proposals must be £40,000 or under, otherwise the applications will not reach the shortlisting stage.
CURRENT CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
Applications are now invited for the Spring 2019 meeting and should be sent to Andrew Parsons as indicated below; application form and guidance notes can be downloaded from the links below.
