Closing date: 05 January 2014

Applications are invited for Clinical Research Fellowships leading to a PhD. The Fellowships are available to medically qualified individuals who are undertaking their specialist training in any clinical discipline, and who want to obtain a PhD with a view to an academic career in any branch of cancer research. Fellowships can be held in member research groups of the Cambridge Cancer Centre (www.cambridgecancercentre.org.uk/the-centre/our-faculty-and-partners).

The funding for UK/EU nationals covers salary, University Composition fees, College fees and consumables for 3 years; overseas applicants are eligible to apply, but due to funding restrictions would be required to self-fund the cost difference of University Composition fees for overseas students compared with UK/EU students (approximately £15,700 per year for 3 years). Fellowships are usually expected to start in October 2014.

Short-listed applicants will be invited to interview and successful applicants will subsequently develop a detailed project with their host laboratory and present it to members of the Clinical Research Fellowship Committee. Award of the Fellowship is dependent on the successful applicant obtaining an offer of admission as a PhD student to the University of Cambridge. Potential applicants who would like advice on the process are invited to contact Dr Katrien Van Look (katrien.vanlook@cambridgecancercentre.org.uk) or Professor Tony Green (haem-pa2@cimr.cam.ac.uk).
