1-Year Research Fellowship Opportunity at The Christie Hospital, Manchester

Radiotherapy Related Research (RRR) is a large group of 100+ clinicians, scientists and medically allied healthcare professionals within the Christie Hospital and the University of Manchester. We have a large international presence in cancer research with a focus on radiotherapy treatment. There is need for a radiology fellow within RRR to help support imaging research and provide specialist input for ongoing projects. There will be plenty of opportunities to design and lead projects, and this will be encouraged. 


Your clinical training will be supported by a large consultant body. The clinical radiology department at the Christie provides oncology PET reporting across the Greater Manchester region and houses 3 MRI scanners (including a 3T Siemens Magnetom) with a fourth being installed later this year. We also support imaging needs for the Proton Beam Unit, MR-Linac and PET/MRI scanner (off site).


It is a great opportunity that comes with ample funding and no formal research experience is required as all training will be provided. You will be mentored by eminent professors and day-to-day proceedings will be supported by clinical fellows and post-doctoral scientists. This is a great opportunity to learn and improve your CV whatever level you’re at. It could provide the experience needed for a successful PhD application, post-doctoral fellowship or consultant NHS job. 


If you are interested, please contact Anubhav Datta ( for further details.

CRASH! Clinical Radiology Academics Speaking Honestly!

The CRASH! podcast series is all about Clinical Radiology Academics Speaking Honestly. Join Tom Turmezei, Consultant Radiologist in Norwich and the 2020 RCR Roentgen Professor, for a series of discussions with radiologists from across the UK that are all passionate about research.


Clinical Radiology Journal Club

Join Clinical Radiology Editor in Chief, Dr Mike Weston, and Dr Graham Robinson as they lead an informal discussion on recent papers published in Clinical Radiology. Aimed at trainees, the journal club is intended to provide an open forum for conversation about the articles, encouraging critical thinking about academic research. Book your place on the RCR website.

A national survey was distributed to trainees regarding their experiences of research, and the role of RADIANT in helping trainees overcome barriers to research. The results were published in Clinical Radiology. Thank you for your responses.
