2018 Crick-Cancer Research UK and Crick Doctoral Fellowships for Clinicians

Applications are invited for Crick-Cancer Research UK and Crick doctoral fellowships for clinicians at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick).

Crick Institute Logo

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 clinical PhD programme partners, see below, and at least one clinician.

Crick's Clinical PhD Programme Partners:

We 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.
