| The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program (CPFP) is now accepting applications for Cancer Prevention Fellows. This is a unique postdoctoral training opportunity for scientists and clinicians in the fields of cancer prevention and control. |
The CPFP is multidisciplinary by nature, as we select fellows from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds to include basic science, epidemiology, health services research, medicine, behavioral science, nursing, social science, nutrition, health education/health promotion, law, dentistry, statistics, geography, exercise science, and engineering. 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, if needed depending on prior training
- Mentored research opportunities at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
- Dedicated training to build scientific and leadership skills
- Competitive stipends, relocation expenses, travel allowances, and more
The typical duration in the CPFP is 4 years (year 1: master's degree; years 2-4: NCI Summer Curriculum in Cancer Prevention and mentored research).
How to Apply:
The application deadline is August 25, 2017. To be considered, applicants must submit application via the CPFP website. To learn more about eligibility requirements and to apply, please visit our website https://cpfp.cancer.gov/ or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
