Applications for the 2019 Crick attachment programme are now closed. 

The attachments programme offers Imperial staff the opportunity to collaborate with other world-leading biomedical scientists and researchers in related fields. There are three types of attachments which allow Imperial staff to access the world-class equipment and facilities at the Crick and many other benefits.

You can find out more about the scheme and what it’s like to work at the Crick from staff who are currently on attachment, in our short film:
