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 clinical research fellowships and senior non-clinical research to create a strong clinical research base that can deliver tangible improvements in cancer outcomes for patients in South Yorkshire and beyond.
We are interested in receiving applications from a range of specialties, for example, medical, clinical and surgical oncology, haematology, palliative care, radiology, pathology, genetics, public health, general practice, as well as medical physics, health economics, medical statistics.
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:
# Lung cancer
# Improving clinical outcomes in common malignancies
# Improved health and wellbeing with and beyond cancer
# Early diagnosis and access to treatment
These new appointments will also 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.
Clinical appointees will also hold an honorary consultant appointment within Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Each appointee will receive a generous start-up package to enable rapid initiation of internationally competitive research.
