Vacancies

Be part of something brilliant.

A multi-million pound Research Institute with the vision to become an international leader in the field of cancer stem cell research, our people are ambitious, working to help shape the future of cancer research.

They provide a mix of established stellar cancer researchers plus those with demonstrable potential to become the next generation of internationally renowned cancer stem cell researchers.  They work with existing world-leading teams in basic biomedical science, genetic, drug development and clinical trials, creating a UK hub which is the European centre for cancer stem cell research. 

Together we will improve the understanding of cancer stem cells and the role they play in a range of cancers; develop new therapies which can be shown to make a real difference in the clinic; and ultimately, transform the survival rates for patients suffering from all types of cancer.

The Jane Hodge Foundation Research Fellowship

Following previous successful appointments to the European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute, we are pleased to announce the creation of a new Fellowship - the Jane Hodge Foundation Research Fellowship.  This new appointment will add significant resource into the specialised field of cancer stem cell research.

The Jane Hodge Foundation Research Fellow will have demonstrable potential to become one of the next generation of internationally renowned cancer stem cell researchers. The appointee will work with existing world-leading teams in basic biomedical science, genetic, drug development and clinical trials, creating a UK hub which will be the European centre for cancer stem cell research.  The initial task will be to explore the concept of cancer stem cells and the role they play in a range of cancers. From there it is hoped to develop new therapies which can be shown to make a real difference in the clinic.  Ultimately, the aim is to transform the survival rates for patients suffering from all types of cancer.

The post is full time and fixed term for 4 years. Closing date:- Friday 3 October 2014

Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowship Scheme

The European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute is interested in hosting Fellowships through the Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowship scheme and invites those interested in spending some time within the Institute in Cardiff to apply.

This scheme provides eligible researchers with a fully funded 2 year fellowship at a Host Institution, with additional funding for research consumables. The European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute can offer researchers the opportunity to develop their research interests in cancer stem cells, working alongside other world-leading scientists in this field.

More information on this scheme can be found here: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/opportunities/h2020/calls/h2020-msca-if-2014.html

Clinical scientist training/work placements

A part of our vision will be to build a strong bridge between fundamental scientific investigation of cancer stem cells and the application of this knowledge for the treatment of disease. In the laboratories and clinics linked to the Research Institute, there may be the opportunity for work placements. At the current time no placements are available, but as more details become available they will be updated on this page.
