Breakthrough Clinical Cancer Research Fellowship

Post Duration: 24 months

Cancer Research @UCC and the UCC Cancer Trials Group (UCC CTG) are pleased to invite applications for the 2024 Breakthrough Clinical Cancer Research Fellowship; a 2-year Fellowship experience which will facilitate patient-focused research in UCC and its affiliated hospitals. The Fellowship is aimed at a medical graduate dedicated to a career in the field of oncology, haematology or a related discipline, ideally who has completed some training in the discipline and is registered with the affiliated training body. The Fellow will work closely with clinician scientists taking care of patients with cancer in the region, and their associated research teams. The successful candidate will be expected to register for a doctoral thesis (most usually an MD) in the appropriate area, if not already obtained. This opportunity builds on initiatives such as the ICAT Fellowships and the National Doctors Training and Planning (NDTP) Aspire Fellowship, and aims to provide high-quality training experience in advance of or as an alternative to international training opportunities.
