This is a list of cancer research labs who are willing to host a researcher from Ukraine for a short term placement (minimum 3 months). The researcher should have expertise relevant to the lab or project they'll be joining.
The placement is likely to be unpaid, but the EACR can provide grant funding up to €5000 to cover any travel, accommodation and subsistence not funded by the host lab.
This kind of short term placement could give a researcher from Ukraine time and safety in which to plan their next move or apply for other roles.
The opportunities listed on this page are reserved for researchers who were actively working in Ukraine until the Russian invasion on 24 February 2022. Due to the nature of the research positions in international labs, applicants need to speak English unless otherwise indicated. Please note that there is a limit of one EACR-funded short term placement per successful applicant.
If you are a researcher displaced from Ukraine with relevant expertise and wish to apply for one of these positions, please use the contact details given for that position. If you are successful, we will coordinate with you and the host lab to allocate an appropriate grant to cover travel and living costs.

Every cancer researcher has something vital to offer in the fight against cancer: let's not leave our Ukrainian colleagues behind.
The funds raised will help us to provide short term placements in cancer research labs to researchers displaced from Ukraine.
