Central to the Crick’s mission is the development of collaborative and multi-disciplinary approaches, encompassing clinical, biological, and physical sciences. We are looking to build our community of medical researchers by joint recruitment of early career independent researchers with our partner universities.

In this round we are looking to recruit clinician scientists who have completed general and/or specialist training in accordance with the requirements of the GMC or have equivalent national medical registration outside the UK, and who wish to set up an independent research program at the Crick linked to a cognate department at Imperial, King’s or UCL.

Successful candidates will be appointed to the university department, but establish their main research base at the Crick for six years, during which time the Crick will provide core-funded research support positions, PhD studentships, consumables, laboratory space and access to state-of- the-art technology facilities.
