About secondments, satellites and sabbaticals


These will allow a Group Leader to transfer all or part of their research group to the Crick for an agreed period (typically between three and six years). Usually the Group Leaders in question will be early in their careers.


Satellites are small groups of HEI researchers (usually one to three) embedded in a Crick research group for an agreed period (typically between one and three years) to undertake specific collaborative projects. Satellites will usually be composed of postdocs, PhD students or technical staff working at the Crick, with the Group Leader remaining at their home institution. A reciprocal form of satellite can also occur, which allows Crick researchers to work in one of the partner HEIs.


Sabbaticals enable a Group Leader to spend up to a year working in a Crick research group, for example to learn new techniques or to undertake a hands-on collaboration.
