An exciting opportunity to become one of tomorrow's Cancer Research Leaders. We wish to attract up to 10 high quality candidates to take up senior non-clinical research fellowships (working in linked areas of applied clinical science e.g. health economics, mathematical modelling, medical statistics) to create a strong clinical research base that can deliver tangible improvements in cancer outcomes for patients in South Yorkshire and beyond.

Appointees should focus on clinical and translational aspects of cancer research within the following priority themes that align closely with the Yorkshire Cancer Research (YCR) research strategy:

  • Early diagnosis and access to treatment
  • Improving clinical outcomes in common malignancies
  • Improved health and wellbeing with and beyond cancer
  • Lung cancer

These new appointments will link with the University of Sheffield (UoS) Research Centres, thereby providing a connected research infrastructure with the dual aims of reducing cancer mortality and improving the experience of living with or after a cancer diagnosis. Each appointee will receive a generous start-up package to enable rapid initiation of internationally competitive research.
