Applications are invited for our 2020 doctoral fellowships for clinicians. These fellowships provide an opportunity for talented clinicians passionate about research, with a strong academic track record, to perform biomedical discovery research while following our three-year clinical PhD programme. Our multidisciplinary research aims to understand why disease develops and to help improve disease diagnosis, prevention and treatment.

Fellows will be based at the Crick, supported by teams comprising a Crick research group leader, at least one clinician and at least one supervisor from one of Crick’s five clinical PhD programme partners:

Fellows will follow, or have access to, a three-year version of the Crick's PhD programme, which provides extensive scientific and generic skills training and clinical mentoring. 

There are a variety of PhD projects available, funded via:
