Career Advancement Opportunities for Postdoctoral Fellows
Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center (DF/HCC) is excited to offer career advancement opportunities for postdoctoral fellows who recognize the importance of taking career development and training beyond the research experience.
These opportunities are open to postdocs at Joslin Diabetes Center and any of our seven member institutions: Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital Boston, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Public Health, and Massachusetts General Hospital.
DF/HCC’s Initiative to Eliminate Cancer Disparities offers a pipeline of training programs that provide hands-on science experiences for high-school, undergraduate and predoctoral students who have shown scientific curiosity and are interested in research.
