Recruitment at CIMR

The Cambridge Institute for Medical Research (CIMR) seeks to recruit exceptional researchers at all career stages. The CIMR is an internationally renowned institute, performing interdisciplinary research at the interface between basic and clinical science to understand the molecular mechanisms of disease.

With access to state-of-the-art core facilities, the Principal Investigators at the CIMR are given the freedom to pursue their research priorities within the Institute’s overall strategy.

We would like to hear from candidates whose research expertise would complement that of CIMR PIs, and whose research programmes would bring new approaches to the Institute. Applicants should be strong contenders for Fellowship support from external funding agencies, such as the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council. The CIMR will sponsor these individuals and provides space and access to resources. These prestigious Fellowships provide generous support packages, usually with five years' funding, which include: a competitive salary; research expenses, including support staff; equipment; and travel allowances. In addition to access to our core facilities, successful candidates will also benefit from close interactions with other nearby Cambridge research institutes. Potential candidates should contact the Director of the CIMR at

The University values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity.
