We have become aware of a fellowship opportunity with The Francis Crick Institute which may be of interest to our membership.

The Francis Crick Institute Postdoctoral career development fellowships for clinicians

The Crick is a multi-disciplinary biomedical discovery research institute in central London dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease.

Crick postdoctoral career development fellowships for clinicians provide funding for 1 year full-time or 2 years part-time postdoctoral research experience in a Crick research group. Fellows with their own salary funded via NIHR, universities or other external funding schemes may also apply to be hosted within a Crick research group.

The fellowships aim to:

  • Foster long-term clinical links and collaborations
  • Provide clinicians with a postdoctoral extension of their research experience, with networking, training and career development opportunities
  • Provide a platform from which fellows may apply for external fellowships, to beheld at the Crick or elsewhere.

The fellowship would suit talented and motivated postdoctoral clinical fellows who are passionate about research and show outstanding potential for continuing a career in academic medicine. Applicants should have completed a medical degree, or equivalent clinical professional qualification, and a research PhD. Applications are welcome from all medical and surgical specialties.

Fellows at the Crick are embedded in a vibrant multidisciplinary research community of more than 1000 scientists carrying out research to improve our understanding of health and disease. They benefit from an extensive seminar programme, networking opportunities, and comprehensive training and career development activities.

Application deadline is 30 April 2021 for Crick fully funded fellowships. Applications from postdoctoral clinical fellows with their own funding are welcome at any time.
