Clinical Research Fellow

University of Sheffield - Academic Unit of Clinical Oncology, Cancer Clinical Trials Centre, Department of Oncology and Metabolism

Contract Type: Fixed-term for 3 years

Faculty: Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health


The University of Sheffield is pleased to announce that Weston Park Cancer Charity has made available funds to support a clinical research fellow for three years to carry out a project with a mix of clinical, translational and laboratory components as appropriate, leading to a PhD degree. The award, known as the Weston Park Cancer Charity Clinical Research Fellowship, will support an appropriate clinical salary (NHS scales) and consumable expenses for the project.

This is a major opportunity to take three years out of specialist training to build the foundation for a research led academic career in a large cancer centre, which contains Weston Park Hospital (one of only three specialist UK cancer hospitals), the Sheffield Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre (ECMC), funded by Cancer Research UK and the Sheffield Cancer Clinical trials Centre. The post will provide as strong base for clinical lecturer and subsequent academic posts.

One Fellowship is currently available. Applications are now invited for this fellowship and the successful candidate will work on one of the five projects listed below.

The projects are:

  1. Induction Chemotherapy and Autografting resets bone remodeling in myeloma – incorporating the Bone Recovery After Treatment Clinical Trial (BRAT Trial).
  2. Development of a new immunotherapy for prostate cancer.
  3. Radiation-induced heart disease in cancer patients: developing intervention strategies.
  4. Circulating tumour DNA for early diagnosis and improved outcome in lung cancer.
  5. Exploration of novel therapeutic targets for the treatment of uveal melanoma.
