Who we're looking for
To join the ICR you’ll be a talented scientist looking for the next step after your initial postdoctoral studies. You’ll be ready to start leading a team independently under the mentorship of a leading senior scientist.
Personal fellowships, funded by a variety of medical research agencies and charities, are the usual route for new leaders to join us in areas in which we are traditionally very strong, such as cancer biology. Success as a fellow will put you on a fast-track route to gaining a long-term career at the ICR.
To join us you will have, or be in the process of gaining, a personal fellowship from one of the major national or international funding bodies, such as the Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK, one of the Research Councils, the Royal Society or the National Institute for Health Research.
What we offer
As an integral part of the ICR’s faculty, you’ll receive additional start-up support (typically a postdoctoral researcher and one PhD student) and the help you need to find your feet and recruit your new team.
You will receive dedicated support in gaining further grant funding and establishing your own programme of independent research as you make the journey towards joining our permanent Faculty.
You will also have access to support networks, mentoring, career development opportunities and tailored training.
We support our scientists with state-of-the-art platform technologies and expert facilities staff, providing cutting-edge facilities for microscopy, imaging, sequencing, proteomics, X-ray crystallography and much more.
