Awarded in April 2019, the Cancer Research UK Clinical Academic Training Programme in Birmingham will fund 10 Clinical Research Training Fellowships and eight Intercalated MBPhD studentships over five years.
We aim to be a leading centre for the development of the next generation of academic clinicians and clinician scientists working towards curing cancer. We want at least 20% of our consultant workforce in oncology to be academic clinicians and for every multidisciplinary team to have an academic clinician as a core member.
Why does this matter? View the below video to find out what clinical research and trials mean to patients.
Our Cancer Research UK Clinical Academic Training Programme provides an outstanding opportunity for early career training in a dynamic, multidisciplinary environment, and is committed to delivering and strengthening a holistic training pathway, from Masters’ level to mid-stage career researcher.
In addition, delivery of high quality research outputs from these studentships, including high impact publications, novel therapeutic strategies and clinical trial concepts, are viewed as strategically important for the development of translational cancer research in Birmingham.
Kick-start your career at the University of Birmingham as a clinical PhD fellow and help to make it one of the UK’s most successful sites for translationally oriented cancer research.
