We are investing heavily in our talent pipeline, securing our research leaders of the future. We are keen to attract outstanding researchers in all disciplines from the UK or internationally and we welcome applications from exceptional candidates with a track record of high impact research.

As an institution, we have a track record of converting fellowships into full-tenured academic positions and we can provide guidance and mentoring for selected candidates in developing your research career.

We value our Fellows, and will work with you to ensure successful research and translational outcomes in the course of your fellowship. We're also here to support your transition to independence, with career coaching, leadership training and tailored developmental opportunities to see you to the next stage in your career.
