We offer clinicians a variety of working opportunities, from working as a postdoctoral researcher in one of our eight scientific divisions, to carrying out independent research as a clinician scientist or clinical research fellow, to heading a specialised research team. We offer an academic career path for clinicians who have excelled in scientific research and have a strong publication record.
The ICR is home to eight research divisions, which specialise in different aspects of cancer research – from understanding the genetics of cancer risk, through to molecular pathology, radiotherapy and imaging, and the discovery and development of cancer treatments. The varied and collaborative nature of the research conducted at the ICR requires clinicians with scientific backgrounds in many different areas, including biology, chemistry and physics.
The ICR also offers clinicians the opportunity to develop their specialty, through a variety of taught or research-based postgraduate degrees. More information about these educational opportunities can be found on the ‘Studying at the ICR’ pages of this website.
