Dundee Cancer Centre PhD Programme for Clinicians

Dundee Cancer Centre PhD Programme for Clinicians

The Dundee Cancer Centre Programme for Clinicians was launched in 2010 to provide a structured training programme in cancer research for talented and ambitious junior doctors who aspire to a career in academic medicine. The programme, which is funded by Cancer Research UK (CRUK), focuses on molecular and translational science in the field of cancer biology.

The programme offers a choice of well-supervised, high quality cancer research projects at the forefront of international science. Research areas extend from the molecular mechanisms underpinning oncogenesis to therapeutic trials of novel anti-cancer agents. Fellows with a core interest in cancer may be from any clinical specialty.

This innovative and streamlined programme has been modelled on, and now runs in conjunction with, the newly introduced Dundee Discovery Fellowship Programme and as such benefits from shared core elements including a 6 week, full-time introductory course, experienced mentoring from practicing academic clinicians and a generic skill training programme.

The programme is open to clinicians in training who are driven to pursue a career in academic medicine. Successful applicants will undertake cancer-focussed projects in either the College of Life Sciences or the College of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing.

There are no current opportunities on the Dundee Cancer Centre Programme for Clinicians.  If you are interested in undertaking a PhD, please contact a Project Investigator in your area of interest to discuss.
