Group Leaders

The London Research Institute (LRI) is Cancer Research UK’s flagship research institute, focussing on the analysis of fundamental biological processes involved in cancer.

The Institute’s international staff work in 50 research groups, housed in well-supported laboratories at Lincoln’s Inn Fields in central London and at Clare Hall in Hertfordshire.

LRI encourages pursuit of ambitious and longer term research programmes at the highest level.

We are seeking innovative scientists to establish independent research programmes and to contribute to the development of the Institute’s vibrant scientific programme, as we move towards the new Francis Crick Institute, due to open in 2015.

The Institute is core-funded by Cancer Research UK. LRI group leaders receive generous Institute core funding for personnel (research fellows, graduate students and technical support), laboratory consumables, and access to the Institute’s comprehensive core technology facilities, backed by a substantial laboratory space and equipment package.

Appointments will be made at junior or senior level according to experience. Junior appointments are initially for seven years with consideration for promotion in the sixth year.
