The Francis Crick Institute (the Crick) is a world class scientific discovery institute. Our scientists aim to carry out creative and ambitious research investigating fundamental questions of biology relevant to human health and disease.
The Crick was funded by six of the the UK's most successful scientific and academic organisations - the Medical Research Council, Cancer Research UK, the Wellcome Trust, UCL, Imperial College London and King's College London. This breadth of research experience allows our scientists to address major problems using a wide variety of approaches from disciplines including biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics and engineering.
The Crick has a multinational outlook, and is proud to be a diverse, open and international institute, with staff and students from over 70 countries.
We are looking for talented and motivated graduates, with backgrounds in biological sciences, physics, mathematics, computer science, bioinformatics and/or chemistry who have decided that they want to do a PhD.
Crick students will benefit from well-resourced research labs and state-of-the-art science technology platforms, excellent scientific and transferable skills training, and a supportive and stimulating research environment. They will register at one of the Crick partner universities (Imperial, King's, or UCL) and receive a non-taxable annual stipend of £22,000 plus payment of tuition fees.
