Excellence & Innovation
We’re committed to supporting the next generation of cancer researchers and we have opportunities for you wherever you are in your career, whether you’re new to the lab, or growing your fully fledged independent research group.
We have a broad range of fellowships, bursaries, job opportunities and studentships to cater for your situation, whether you’re an academic researcher or a clinician scientist, and whether you require a fully funded fellowship or grants to advance individual projects.
Research opportunities in early detection and diagnosis
We support a broad portfolio of clinical and translational research through response mode funding, initiatives and investments in clinical infrastructure.
We aim to maximise patient benefit through high-impact early phase and first-in-human trials, ambitious and innovative trial designs, and our core-funded supporting infrastructure, which together enable us to learn as much as we can from the patients on our trials.
We’re also committed to ensuring that clinical academics have the support they need to develop a career in cancer research, and we have a range of opportunities for clinical researchers at all career levels.
