The postdoctoral training program is designed to provide training in the conduct of scholarly investigation in one of the four scientific areas of expertise of the Cancer Biology Training Grant preceptors. The training is designed for biomedical scientists who have a Ph.D. in basic science (biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, microbiology, immunology, etc.) and for physicians who have basic research experience and interest in the areas studied by the preceptors. Support for postdoctoral trainees is typically for two years. However, all postdoctoral trainees are encouraged to apply for independent postdoctoral funding while they are being supported on the training grant.
Interested postdoctoral fellows currently training in a preceptor's laboratory may apply for support on the Cancer Biology Training Grant when a position becomes available. All positions are selected on a competitive basis by the Cancer Biology Training Grant Steering Committee. Contact the Cancer Biology Training Grant Director for information on how to apply.
