In 2015, the attachments programme of secondments, satellites and sabbaticals was introduced to encourage collaborative working between the Francis Crick Institute and the partner universities.
In the first three rounds, 37 attachments were successful: 9 secondments, 21 satellite groups, and 7 sabbaticals in a wide spread of disciplines including physical and biophysical, computational and mathematical, and clinical disciplines.
UCL PIs at the Crick
UCL researchers have been very successful in the attachments initiative and we currently have 4 secondment groups, 6 satellites and 1 sabbatical hosted at the Crick.
The 2019 attachment call is now open!
Applications are now being accepted for attachments to the Crick. The deadline is 9.00am on Monday 1st April 2019.
The call is open to scientists running research groups, and aims to attract people and groups with skills that complement the Crick’s core talents and capabilities and to identify research projects that will best benefit from collaborative working. Therefore, applications in translational clinical, physical, mathematical and computational sciences will be prioritised for selection. In addition, an aim of the secondment scheme is to support training for new group leaders and, as such, applications from early career PIs are prioritised.
If you're interested in becoming a UCL attachment at the Crick and want to know more about the scheme, then watch our short video to hear about the experiences of current attachments.
How to apply
Please complete the application form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline stated below.
Your application will be reviewed in a two-step process. The first stage is internal review by UCL and if successful, your application will go on to be considered by a panel composed of representatives from the Crick and its partner universities. Interviews will take place in late June/early July and decisions are expected shortly thereafter.
The submission deadline is 9.00am on Monday 1st April 2019. Late submissions will not be accepted.
