Applications – Clinical Research Training Fellowships

Applications must be submitted through the Crick’s online academic recruitment system. 

Before beginning an application, you should read the information on this page and the “completing the application form” page. You should also find out about the projects being offered to start in September 2020 and their supervisors via the specific project pages (see below).

You must complete all required sections of the application form in full.

Key dates

  • Your application must be submitted by the deadline: 12noon 29 November 2019
  • We will not accept late applications.
  • We should receive your references by 6 December 2019. Your application may still be considered if references are not received by this deadline. However, no applicant will be invited to interview unless references have been received.
  • You will find out if you have been invited to interview for the programme by 17 January 2020.


Interviews will take place at the Crick on Thursday 13 February 2020, when candidates should be available all day. Some candidates may also be asked to attend on Wednesday 12 February 2020. We will pay for hotel accommodation (if needed) and reasonable travel expenses, including for international candidates. If you will be travelling from outside the European Economic Area, we will book air travel to keep the candidate costs down.

During the interview day, candidates will find out more about the PhD programme, will be interviewed by a panel of CRUK CoL faculty, and have the opportunity to meet the relevant supervision teams. Fellowships will be awarded to the best applicants based on information submitted on the application form, references and performance during the interviews.
