Qualifications Bachelor's Degree
Applications are invited for a Clinical Research Fellowship leading to a PhD. The Fellowship is available to medically qualified individuals who are undertaking their specialist training in any clinical discipline, and who want to obtain a PhD with a view to an academic career in cancer research. Eligibility to practice clinically within the UK is an essential qualification.
A Fellowship is available for 2019 in the CRUK Cambridge Centre Aerodigestive Programme. The successful applicant will be based on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
Short-listed candidates will be invited to interview, at which their career intentions and the PhD project proposal will be discussed.
CRUK Cambridge Centre Clinical Research Fellowships are financed by Cancer Research UK and provide clinicians with funds to cover a full-time 3 year PhD degree. This includes a clinical salary and University Composition Fees at the ‘UK/EU’ rate. Overseas applicants may apply for these positions, and will usually be eligible to apply for the reduced staff University Composition Fee (UCF). This is one third of either the full- or part-time Home Student UCF, for all qualifying students, irrespective of whether they are classified as UK, EU or Overseas. Successful international applicants would be required to apply for the reduced staff UCF via their host department, and if they are not eligible they may be required to self-fund the cost difference between the two.
Short-listed applicants will be interviewed by a panel of Principal Investigators from the CRUK Cambridge Centre and you will be given the opportunity to visit the relevant department or institute for the proposed project.
Award of the Fellowship is dependent on the successful applicant obtaining an offer of admission as a PhD student to the University of Cambridge.
