The CAMS-Oxford Institute offers Career Development Fellowships to Postdocs looking for support to become independent group leaders.

What is a career development fellowship?

A career development fellowship provides a key stepping stone in the progression from a postdoctoral position to an independent group leader. You will be expected to create a thriving research team through the supervision of students & staff, produce high quality outputs and positively contribute to the CAMS-Oxford Institute community while you gain experience and confidence of being a group leader. Within this position you will be supported and mentored by a senior affiliate member of the COI.

  • Space and facilities with access to our core scientific platforms
