The Fellowships are tailored specifically to the needs of individual talented clinicians and provide both academic and clinical mentorship and guidance. The principal aim is to provide high-quality research training in cancer research.
The Fellowships are structured around existing world-leading research programmes. These provide unparalleled research environments for clinician scientists who will benefit from a framework for research and training in the combined fields of basic science and clinical medicine. Some projects require expertise in radiation oncology and for those projects; applicants must be trainees in Clinical or Radiation Oncology.
The Fellowships will be based at the Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology and include a range of specialities and disease sites reflecting the breadth and depth of the cancer research within the Oxford Institute.
