Post-doctoral research fellowships

The Crick Centre is particularly keen to recruit a constant through-put of the world’s very best post-doctoral researchers and has core funding to bring a limited number of fellows to the University of Sheffield each year.

To express your interest in future post-doctoral research fellowships, please email the Crick Centre. We are keen to recruit the world’s very best post-doctoral researchers, from a broad range of fields. This may involve working in computer science, human embryology or governance and regulation; the key to the work has to be a commitment to engaged scholarship and a focus on how the specific research ‘hook’ has wide-ranging social implications that need to be understood and discussed.

Competition for these positions is fierce and it is expected that candidates will explore all possible external funding opportunities in order to support their visit.

A post-doc at the Crick Centre is perfect for early career researchers wanting to conduct world class cutting edge research with genuine public impact.
