There are two opportunities for our academics to work alongside a Crick PI to submit a joint project proposal and work to supervise a student: the Doctoral Clinical Fellows scheme and/or the PhD programme. 

Doctoral Clinical Fellows 

When: The call for project proposals for the Doctoral Clinical Fellows scheme is usually open for the month of March. 

Apply: The call for this scheme usually opens via departmental emails, although you may request more information, express your interest, or ask to be directly notified when the calls opens by emailing the Crick-Imperial Partnership Manager, Dr Corinne Hanlon.

More information: Doctoral Clinical Fellows carry out exciting research projects while following the Crick's clinical PhD programme over a three-year period rather than the traditional four-years. Applicants apply directly to the Crick and are asked to express their interest in two or three PhD projects. 

PhD Programme 

When: The call for project proposals for jointly-funded Crick-Imperial PhDs usually opens to academics from May and closes in mid-June. 

Apply: The call for this scheme usually opens via departmental emails, although you may request more information, express your interest, or ask to be directly notified when the calls opens by emailing the Crick-Imperial Partnership Manager, Dr Corinne Hanlon.

More information: The Crick’s international reputation attracts high quality applicants from across the globe. For the 2021 PhD Programme, 43 appointments were made from over 1,600 applications. The Crick PhD Programme hosts both core-Crick and jointly-funded students. As a supervisor of a jointly-funded PhD, your Department is expected to cover tuition fees and 50% of associated costs (stipends and consumables). Each student is expected to split their time between the Crick and College. 

Full details on the Crick PhD Programme are available on the Crick website.
