Are you ready to scale new heights?

A global recruitment drive is underway to bring 20 of the world’s best cancer experts and their teams to Manchester.  Specialist cancer centre The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and The University of Manchester are jointly funding the plan as part of their role in the Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC).

In order to accomplish our goals, we seek pioneers who share our enthusiasm for innovation and collaboration; revolutionising cancer treatment.  We are particularly seeking scientists and clinical academics in:

  • Screening and prevention
  • Personalised cancer therapy
  • Radiotherapy related research
  • Lung cancer
  • Melanoma
  • Women's cancers
  • Haematological oncology
