Yorkshire Cancer Research (YCR) Connects

Exciting Opportunity to Become one of Tomorrow’s Cancer Research Leaders

We wish to attract up to 10 high quality candidates to take up senior clinical research fellowships and senior non-clinical research fellowships to create a strong clinical research base that can deliver tangible improvements in cancer outcomes for patients in South Yorkshire and beyond.

We are interested in receiving applications from a range of specialties, for example, medical, clinical and surgical oncology, haematology, palliative care, radiology, pathology, genetics, public health, general practice, as well as medical physics, health economics, medical statistics

Appointees should focus on clinical and translational aspects of cancer research within the following priority themes that align closely with the YCR research strategy:

  • Lung cancer
  • Improving clinical outcomes in common malignancies
  • Improved health and wellbeing with and beyond cancer
  • Early diagnosis and access to treatment

These new appointments will also link with the University of Sheffield Research Centres, thereby providing a “connected” research infrastructure with the dual aims of reducing cancer mortality and improving the experience of living with or after a cancer diagnosis.

Clinical appointees will also hold an honorary consultant appointment within Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Each appointee will receive a generous start-up package to enable rapid initiation of internationally competitive research.

The salary for the senior non-clinical fellowships will be at grade 8/9 dependent on experience and the salary for senior clinical fellowships will be commensurate with NHS clinical scales (consultant level).
