More information: The physical sciences group leaders scheme jointly recruits exceptional researchers who are affiliated with both Imperial and the Crick. This scheme is aimed at early career researchers to help build both Imperial’s and the Crick’s community of interdisciplinary researchers working in physical sciences and applying their research to biomedicine. We are especially keen to see applicants from the Faculty of Engineering. The successful PI and their group (of up to 6 members) will spend 6 years at Crick developing their lab before moving to Imperial on a permanent contract. The salary costs of the PI and their group are covered by the Crick for the initial 6 year period. You can find out more about the scheme and our existing physical science group leaders on the the Crick’s website
