The Francis Crick Institute is a new research institute with an international reputation for cutting edge research into basic biology and are committed to training the next generation of research scientists. The Four-Year Postdoctoral Training programme is part of this commitment and many postdocs leave to set up their own research groups. Postdocs also benefit from living and working in one of the world’s greatest scientific, cultural and cosmopolitan capital.
The post holder will work in the laboratory of James Turner, which works on the role of sex chromosomes in mammalian disease and development. They will be expected to take a lead role in their project, to collaborate within the team and foster collaborations beyond the team, teach junior members of the team and interact with other members of the institute.
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.
An independent organisation, its founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.
The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a brand new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under a single roof in Europe.
The Francis Crick Institute will be world-class with a strong national role. Its distinctive vision for excellence includes commitments to collaboration; to developing emerging talent and exporting it the rest of the UK; to public engagement; and to helping turn discoveries into treatments as quickly as possible to improve lives and strengthen the economy.
