Wellcome-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute


At the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute we are committed to developing the next generation of stem cell researchers and have extensive experience in supporting early career scientists in the years following their PhD. 

Joining the Institute will give you access to state of the art facilities and scientific support within a vibrant and collaborative research community.  With a host of seminar series’ and events throughout the year, there are many opportunities to present and critically discuss your new research with world leading stem cell scientists here in Cambridge.

Current vacancies are advertised on the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute Available Positions page.  Our group leaders also welcome speculative applications from post-doctoral candidates.  Please contact them directly for details.
