Short summary

This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly interactive, international group of scientists focused on understanding cancer cell metabolism, with a view to harnessing this knowledge in the design of novel therapeutic approaches. For this project we are looking for postdoctoral fellows who will expand on our recent studies examining the metabolic interplay between cancer cells and the surrounding tumour microenvironment. The successful applicant will use a wide range of techniques, including metabolomics, cell biology and in vivo studies. We need dedicated, ambitious and collaborative scientists with previous experience in metabolism and cancer cell. Postdoctoral Training Fellows are expected to lead their own projects, contribute to other projects on a collaborative basis (both in the lab and with external collaborators) and guide PhD students in their research. The ability to work in a team is essential. For more information please visit our lab webpage at

Project scope

Our group studies various aspects of cancer biology, including metabolism, cancer immunology and the function of the p53 tumour suppressor protein. Within the context of this framework, you will be given the opportunity to develop your own project, with strong support from your laboratory colleagues. The direction of research will be guided by your own interests and ambitions. The Francis Crick Institute will give you unprecedented opportunities to develop skills and expertise, as well as interactions with an outstanding faculty of life scientists.

About us

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 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 in one building in Europe.

The Francis Crick Institute will be world-class with a strong national role. Its distinctive vision for excellence includes commitments to collaboration; developing emerging talent and exporting it the rest of the UK; public engagement; and helping turn discoveries into treatments as quickly as possible to improve lives and strengthen the economy.
