Molecular Epidemiology of Cancer T32
The Cancer Epidemiology Program of H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute invites applications to its T32 Post-Doctoral Training Program in Molecular Epidemiology of Cancer. This NCI-supported interdisciplinary training program is designed to prepare fellows for careers as independent investigators engaged in cancer epidemiological research that incorporates biomarkers identified at the molecular, biochemical, or -omic level. The two year program combines a specialized curriculum (formal didactic training and one-on-one interactions with mentors) with research experience (participation in funded studies under the guidance of an experienced investigator).
Mentoring will be provided by teams of experienced faculty from a variety of epidemiology-related disciplines, including cancer epidemiology, statistical genetics, cancer genetics, bioinformatics and clinical specialties spanning diverse areas of research interests and cancer sites.
A downloadable announcement of our training opportunity can be found here. (PDF)
Applicants must have a terminal degree in epidemiology, medicine, nursing, public health, or a related discipline. Given the program’s focus in molecular epidemiology, it is anticipated that most candidates will have some previous training in epidemiology and/or biostatistics. Stipends and benefits are highly competitive. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. Individuals on temporary visas are not eligible.
Application materials include:
