The Cambridge Cancer 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 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.
Fellows are offered training and support by the Centre to develop their research skills (laboratory management, forming collaborations and networking), transferable skills (presentation skills, project and time management skills) and academic skills (preparing grant applications, writing scientific papers and reviewing papers). They are assigned a mentor to guide their progress.
