The Clinician Scientist Fellowship from Cancer Research UK (CRUK) supports clinicians to develop a clinical academic research career through a period of postdoctoral training. Applicants should have a higher degree (MD/PhD) in a cancer-relevant research area, and obtained CCT and hold consultant status, or a national training number (NTN or NTN(A)), and at the time of award have clear plans for obtaining CCT. Applicants should also have the support of an appropriate research group and supervisor​ at a UK university or research institute. The fellowship provides funding for 5 years that cover salary, research/technical assistance, running expenses, and equipment, up to 1 million GBP. Successful applicants who do not have the legal right to work in the UK are eligible for support for an accelerated route through the Tier 1 visa system. This is a biannual award with a two-stage application process.

The next preliminary submissions are due on October 3, 2024 and the invited applications deadline is to be confirmed.
