This is an exciting opportunity to join the visionary research team in the Centre of Excellence in Autoimmunity in Cancer (CEAC), the world’s first centre of excellence specialising in pioneering research into the early detection of cancer. The centre brings together a multi-disciplinary team from across the globe, sharing knowledge and working together with industry to not just make cutting edge cancer treatment break-throughs, but assist getting them to market – thus saving lives - quickly.
Our prestigious internal fellowship schemes are a fundamental part of our Research Vision and aim to recruit the next generation of internal research leaders. We will be recruiting a diverse cohort of 100 Nottingham and Anne McLaren Research Fellows by the end of 2022 and as part of this we are particularly interested to recruit an outstanding clinical academic fellow to support our pioneering cancer research.
We support applicants from diverse career paths and background and also welcome applications from those wishing to work part-time in order to combine the fellowship with personal responsibilities.
We are inviting applications in the following areas:
The fellowship can be held as a Nottingham Research fellowship (aimed at exceptional postdoctoral researchers in all academic disciplines represented at the University) or an Anne McLaren Fellowship (aimed at outstanding female scholars in science, technology, engineering at the early stage of their academic careers).
Each fellowship offers:
Eligibility: Candidates must have been awarded their PhD (or equivalent such as a post-graduate MD/DM). This scheme is aimed at early career researchers, and candidates do not normally have more than 8 year’s postdoctoral experience. However, there are no eligibility rules based on years of post-doctoral experience as this doesn’t allow for variations of career paths across disciplines. Candidates will be assessed on their quality, potential and track record, relative to their career stage.
Clinical Academics are encouraged to apply, and there is a recognition that for this staff group there are very specific challenges, namely that career progression is linked to professional accreditation as a Consultant and the co-funding of any post with the NHS Trust. We will work with you to identify an appropriate allocation of clinical and fellowship time to support your career and research progression. Please note that, while the School of Medicine plans to support successful Clinical Fellows strongly at the conclusion of their Fellowship, it is not able to guarantee a permanent position following the Fellowship as this is dependent on NHS trust funding.
