The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research organisations, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. We provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, and discovered many of the early chemotherapy drugs. Today, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) leads the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment.

The ICR is ranked as the UK’s leading academic research centre. Our unique partnership with The Royal Marsden and ‘bench-to-bedside’ approach allows us to create and deliver results in a way that other institutions cannot. Together we are rated in the top four cancer centres globally.

The ICR is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best minds in the world to join us in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.

This provides an ideal background to further develop the appointee’s clinical experience that will enable them to be well placed to develop as an independent practitioner in their chosen area.

  • Clinical research. The Academic Unit is actively involved in a large number of national and local clinical trial protocols frequently as national chief investigator. Although this is primarily a clinical post the appointee will be encouraged to actively participate in this research, develop clinical research projects and publish peer reviewed articles.
