Postdoc recruitment

We're always looking for enthusiastic postdocs to join us at the Crick.


How to apply

Postdoc recruitment at the Crick is open all year round, and we recruit postdocs in two different ways.

1. Advertised roles

When a lab has secured funding for a new postdoc to join their group, they will advertise the role through our recruitment system, Workday. 

These roles are listed on this page. When applying for a postdoc position, you will generally be asked for an academic CV, a covering letter detailing your research plans, and academic references. Different roles will have different specific requirements, and you should check the job description and the application form on Workday for each role. 

2. Prospective applications

Even if a research lab is not advertising a vacancy, they still might be open to new postdocs joining their group. If you would like to apply to a lab that doesn't have an open vacancy, visit the lab's page on the website and go to their 'Vacancies' page to see how the group leader would like to be contacted by potential postdocs.

Most group leaders will ask for an academic CV and a brief research plan to begin with, although different research groups will have different requirements listed on their lab webpages.

These roles will usually not have funding associated with them, and either the applicant or the research group will have to work with the Crick's Grants team to apply for external funding. If you already have funding for your postdoc from an external source, this information should be included in your message to the group leader.
