Work with us

Our current vacancies are posted on the main King's website

The Division is committed to equality and diversity, and the ‘women in science’ agenda. The Division holds a Bronze Athena Swan Award and we are working towards a Silver application in November 2015. The Division promotes a fair and equitable environment where everyone can succeed. We provide support to staff with parenting and caring roles and there are college-wide initiatives to support career development for all staff.

There are post-doc and PhD groups to support staff at different stages in their careers and we provide formal and informal mentoring opportunities at the Institute.

Short-term work attachments

The Cicely Saunders Institute will consider applications from established researchers, or those committed to developing a research career, for short term work attachments (1-6 months), provided the work is undertaken on - or strongly linked to - current departmental projects, and that mutually-agreed useful outcomes can be achieved within the proposed time scale.
Researchers undertaking such attachments are provided with unique opportunities to work with leading academics in palliative care and rehabilitation, and are expected to actively contribute to the dynamic research environment within the department.


The Department does not provide grants or other funding for such attachments – any funding required will need to be obtained and agreed in advance by the researcher themselves from their home institution or other sources.


Researchers interested in short-term work attachments should send a letter and CV to with the following details:

  • an outline of proposed work (including specific study objectives and a planned timetable)
  • curriculum vitae with referees
  • suggested dates for the attachment
  • covering letter

All proposals are reviewed at our internal departmental meetings, and decisions are made on the strength of the application, but also according to availability and current demand for placements.

Applicants are advised as soon as possible of the outcome, and at the most within 2 months of receipt of the application.
