Overview of postdoctoral opportunities

The CRUK Cambridge Centre offers a wealth of opportunities for postdoctoral research fellows. The Centre’s partner organisations recruit the best scientists in their fields – from basic cell biology and cancer genomics to computational biology and population sciences – and help them develop a career in translational cancer research.

Postdoctoral research fellows benefit from the Centre’s collaborations across a wide range of scientific disciplines as well as the close links between the clinic and the laboratory. Many of the research leaders across the Centre are medically qualified and continue with clinical practice alongside their research, acting as role models for scientists at the start of their career. 

Cambridge University offers a range of support services to postdoc research fellows through the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.
