Clinician Scientists

The Wellcome Trust - Medical Research Council Cambridge Stem Cell Institute is founded on the concept that deep understanding of stem cell biology will contribute to transforming future healthcare. In 2018 we will move into a new purpose built building adjacent to Addenbrooke’s Hospital and multiple research institutes - We are seeking exceptional clinician scientists to complement our existing programmes and facilitate the translation of advances in stem cell science into novel stem cell "medicines". Applications in any area of medicine or surgery are welcome. 

Applicants should have completed a higher degree and be (or have recently been) clinically active either at a junior (SpRs) or senior level (consultant equivalent). Junior candidates will have significant original research achievements, an exceptional project proposal and would be aligned within a senior PI group whilst developing their independence. Senior candidates should have an established track record as an independent group leader, be engaged in high quality science and have an outstanding and well-founded research proposal. 

The Institute offers a collegiate environment with excellent core facilities for laboratory-based studies. In addition, our co-location with a major teaching hospital (Addenbrooke's) provides extensive opportunities to pursue patient based studies. Successful candidates will be supported to obtain external personal fellowship and grant support within 1-2 years.  Interim start up packages may be available. We will also facilitate interaction between the post holder and the appropriate clinical services in Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust or the Training Deanery depending on level of seniority.
