Clinical PhD Fellowship based at the CRUK Birmingham Centre

Applications are invited for a Cancer Research UK-funded Clinical PhD studentship at the newly funded CRUK Birmingham Centre. The Centre aims to catalyse translationally-aligned fundamental discovery science in oncology, and novel therapeutic developments originating from this research. Linked strategically with Birmingham’s Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre and the University of Birmingham’s CRUK Clinical Trials Unit, it contributes to a vibrant pathway for genuine bench-to-bedside cancer research. The Centre’s PhD programme provides an outstanding opportunity for early career training in this dynamic, multidisciplinary environment.

A single 3-year Clinical PhD Fellowship is available (£256,000), providing full funding for student fees and laboratory consumables, and salary funding.

The Centre’s scientific focus is on understanding oncogenesis and tumour immunobiology, providing the scientific basis for novel targeted therapies, immunotherapies, and stratification approaches. Core themes of the Centre are Immunology, Genomics and Virology.

Applications from clinical candidates highlighting a pre-arranged mentor and project will be favourably viewed. Successful applicants will have a strong academic track record, laboratory research experience, and be highly motivated and ambitious.

Applications/informal enquiries should be directed to cruk2017@contacts.bham.ac.uk

To apply, please send a detailed CV, names and addresses of two referees, and a personal statement highlighting your research experience and reasons for applying by clicking on the apply button.

Closing date: 1st May 2017.
