The mission of the Cancer Research Career Development and Education (CRCDE) is to be the coordinating center for all educational activity at Moffitt, facilitating integration, synergy, and developing innovative approaches to education, training, and career development across all sectors of the cancer center.

Interested in a career in cancer research? We are interested in recruiting scholars who have a profound interest in preventing, treating and curing cancer, as well as those who would like to help patients in their struggle to beat the disease.

Moffitt Cancer Center is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida. As a Comprehensive Cancer Center, our research enterprise offers training and education in numerous areas key in the fight against cancer. 

Postdoctoral Training

Researchers holding a terminal degree in their field (Ph.D., Ed.D., Sc.D., Dr.P.H. or M.D.) who are interested in a cancer-related topic can receive intensive training and specialization under the guidance of Moffitt’s outstanding faculty mentors. Postdoctoral training at Moffitt is designed to provide fellows with the skills and support they need to gain independence and pursue a career path of their choosing, whether in academics, industry, government, or teaching, among others.
