Call for Expressions of Interest.
The highly multidisciplinary CRUK Cambridge Centre Early Detection Programme engages world-class researchers in projects to better understand the biology of the disease, to find it earlier and to reduce the number of deaths caused by cancer. We are delighted that the CRUK Cambridge Centre Early Detection Programme is able to offer funding for an Academic Clinical Lecturer to commence in April 2019.
The four-year post will allow the Fellow to spend 50% protected time on academic research, with the remaining 50% time being spent on clinical training in the candidates chosen specialty. Most trainees will obtain their CCT during their Clinical Lectureship*. This post is an ideal opportunity to nurture clinician scientists who are keen to pursue Early Detection as a research goal.
* GPs are likely to have completed their CCT. This post would enable them to develop their post-doctoral academic research at 50%, with the remaining 50% time in clinical practice.
Applicants may be from any clinical discipline that could be aligned to projects in epidemiology (including quantitative studies in evolutionary biology), clinical genetics, primary care, clinical or pre-clinical imaging and translational laboratory science with relevance to ovarian, upper GI, urological or gynaecological cancers.
The field of research will be determined by the successful applicant in discussion with the PIs of the Early Detection Programme (see https://www.earlydetectioncambridge.org.uk/about/directory).
In the first instance please would you submit an expression of interest to EDadmin@cam.ac.uk by the 31st July 2018.
Candidates should be aware that at the next stage of recruitment to this post (formal application), they must hold or have submitted a PhD/MD and that the qualification must have been awarded before a post can be taken up.
