Clinical Training Fellows
Our next big discovery could be you
We’re searching for the brightest minds in cancer research
The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes. Together with Imperial College London, a world leading university devotedto Science, Engineering, Medicine and Business, we have recently launched a new Clinical Academic Training Programme, which will provide clinical academics with the expertise to discover, develop and deliver the next generation of treatments, technologies and methodologies into clinical care.
Ranked as the UK’s leading academic research centre, the Institute of Cancer Research leads the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment.
Imperial is a world top ten university with an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research. Consistently rated amongst the world's best universities, Imperial is committed to developing the next generation of researchers, scientists and academics through collaboration across disciplines.
Together, we are committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best minds in the world to join us in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.
We are now inviting applications for up to six three-year clinical training fellowships. These are funded through the ‘Cancer Research UK Clinical Research Training Fellowships at the Institute of Cancer Research and Imperial’ and the ‘Wellcome Trust Clinical PhD Programme’ based at the Institute of Cancer Research and The Royal Marsden. The successful candidates are expected to register for a PhD in October 2020.
Fellowship awards include tuition fees, research expenses and a clinical salary.
These prestigious fellowships aim to support the training of future clinical academic leaders in cancer research, and are exceptional opportunities to expose clinical trainees to world-class training in fundamental cell and molecular biology, therapeutics, radiotherapy, surgery – and also to the development of new clinical devices, methodologies and therapeutics through the CRUK Convergence Science Centre at the ICR and Imperial.
Applicants must be eligible for full registration or hold limited registration with the General Medical Council and be able to demonstrate the potential to pursue a career as an academic clinician. It is anticipated that many applicants will have already commenced their specialist training but this is not essential.
