Secondments allow a research group leader at one of our university partners to transfer all or part of their group to the Crick for an agreed period. The group leaders are usually early in their careers and will be at the Crick for three to six years.

Satellites are small groups (usually one to three people) of university researchers embedded in a Crick research group for a set time. They normally join us for a period of one to three years. Similarly, Crick researchers can establish satellite groups at UCL, Imperial or King’s.

Sabbaticals enable a research group leader to spend up to a year working in a Crick research group for hands-on collaboration or to learn a new technique.
