This Fellowship funds outstanding postdoctoral researchers and health care professionals to research changes that can prevent people getting cancer.
Applications are considered on the basis of:
- academic achievements to date and future potential,
- scientific merit, novelty and potential for translation of the research proposal,
- research environment provided by the sponsoring department.
Applicants should have:
- at the time of submitting the application, between three and five years of research experience since completing a PhD (or equivalent higher research degree),
- an excellent track record in previous postdoctoral position(s).
We expect successful Fellows to:
- Engage with the overall Cancer Prevention Initiative, working alongside CRUK’s Policy Research Centre for Prevention, and/or involvement with the Innovation Fund scheme.
- Have a clear training and development plan for the duration of the Fellowship, which demonstrates how skills and knowledge will have increased by the end of the Fellowship.
- Have a clear plan as to how they will increase their collaborations and scientific networks – including outside of their immediate research field – over the course of the Fellowship. This may be through time spent working in other research groups, or remote collaboration.
