Apply for Postdoctoral Training in Cancer Prevention at NCI

August 14, 2017

Preventing cancer is one of the most important scientific and public health aims for the 21st Century. The overarching goal of the Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program (CPFP) is to provide a strong foundation for scientists and clinicians to train in the field of cancer prevention and control.

The Cancer Prevention Fellowship is carefully structured to offer individuals comprehensive training in the field of cancer prevention and control. It is multidisciplinary by nature, as we select fellows from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. Unlike some postdoctoral programs, our Fellows have the opportunity to select their own preceptors, and develop and lead research activities based on their own interests. The Program provides:

  • Up to 4 years of financial support
  • Master of Public Health (MPH) or an equivalent degree at any one-year accredited university program
  • NCI Summer Curriculum in Cancer Prevention
  • Mentored research opportunities at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) or Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
  • Professional development and leadership training

Application Period: May 1 - August 25, 2017
