When: The call for postdoctoral clinical fellows with their own funding in place is open all year. The call for Crick-funded fellowships is usually open from mid-March until late April.

Who: This opportunity would suit talented and motivated postdoctoral clinical fellows who are passionate about research and show outstanding potential for continuing a career in academic medicine. Applicants should have completed a medical degree, or equivalent clinical professional qualification, and hold, or be about to hold, a research PhD. Applications are welcome from all medical and surgical specialties.

Apply: Interested applicants, for both independently and Crick-funded fellowships, should apply directly through the Crick’s website.

More information: Applications are invited for Crick postdoctoral career development fellowships for clinicians at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). These fellowships provide funding for one year full-time or two years part-time postdoctoral research experience for clinicians in a Crick research group. Fellows with their own salary funded via NIHR, their universities or other external funding schemes may also apply to be hosted within a Crick research group.

The fellowships aim to:

  • Foster long-term clinical links and collaborations.
  • Provide clinicians with a postdoctoral extension of their research experience, and with scientific networking, training and career development opportunities.
  • Provide a platform from which fellows may apply for external funding, e.g. clinician scientist fellowships, to be held at the Crick or elsewhere.

Fellows at the Crick are embedded in a vibrant multidisciplinary research community of more than 1,000 scientists carrying out research to improve our understanding of health and disease. They benefit from an extensive seminar programme including Crick lectures, Interest Group seminars and Symposia (information of which can be found on the Crick website) from clinical academic networking opportunities, and from comprehensive training and career development activities including technical training via our Science Technology Platforms (full details on the Crick website), science communication and grant writing.
