Early career Group Leaders in Physical Sciences applied to Biomedicine

The Crick partnership brings together the strengths of the Crick and its partner universities in the biomedical sciences, and in the physical, computational and engineering sciences applied to biomedicine. This provides a unique opportunity for outstanding candidates to set up a research activity at the Crick, before transferring to a College department. 

We are looking to recruit chemists, physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists or engineers who are applying their research to biomedicine and who wish to set up an independent research programme at the Crick with strong links to a department at Imperial, before transferring ths activity.

Successful candidates will be appointed to the College department, but establish their main research base at the Crick for six years, during which time the Crick will provide some core-funded research support positions, PhD studentships, consumables, laboratory space and access to state-of- the-art technology facilities. At the end of the six years appointees will transfer their main research base to the College department with the opportunity of an ongoing Crick affiliation.

More information on the joint recruitment and contact details can be found via the Crick's webpages
