Postdocs have access to our state-of-the-art science technology platforms, our extensive seminar series and strong collaborative and multidisciplinary research culture.

We are committed to training the next generation of science leaders. The Crick's four-year Postdoctoral Training Programme, which provides extensive training and career development opportunities, is part of this commitment.

Contract lengths

You'll be hired on a four-year contract, with a possible extension for up to six years in total.

Some postdocs come to the Crick on shorter fellowships, for example, when supported by external funding for a specific project.

You will also be encouraged to apply for external fellowships awarded by other organisations such as EMBO, the Human Frontier Science Program, Wellcome, FEBS and the EU via Marie Curie Fellowships.

Current vacancies


Our research group leaders also welcome enquiries and applications (a cover letter and CV) from motivated and outstanding prospective postdocs committed to a scientific career. You can find out more about our research groups and the group leaders' contact details in our labs pages.
