Cancer Prevention Fellowships: Call for applications

13 August 2015

The Cancer Research UK / Bupa Foundation Cancer Prevention Initiative aims to tackle cancer by funding cutting edge research into behavioural and lifestyle changes that can prevent people getting cancer.

As part of the Initiative, Cancer Prevention Fellowships are 3-year awards to fund outstanding postdoctoral scientists and health care professionals to research behaviour changes that can prevent people getting cancer.

Structured to promote the translation of cancer prevention research into policy and practical interventions through policy-focused secondments, fellows will gain extensive knowledge and experience to become future leaders in cancer prevention.

Cancer Research UK provide funding for the fellow’s salary, a research assistant, plus training and development to provide extra support in translational aspects of the research.

Applications are now open and welcome across any of the range of behaviours for cancer prevention, including smoking, obesity, diet, alcohol, UV exposure, and physical activity.

The deadline for applications is 23 October 2015. Apply now (external link) or contact Dr Lucy Davies, 020 3469 8824 for more information. Applicants are encouraged to contact the office in advance of submitting their application.
