NIH/NRSA fellowships are available beginning July 1 for a research training program in surgical oncology. Trainees will pursue an independent two-year research project in the laboratory of an accomplished scientist experienced in physiology, pathology, microbiology, immunology, molecular biology, or epidemiology with guidance provided by a clinical mentor in surgery. This training program is designed to provide research training for surgical residents interested in pursuing academic careers in surgical oncology-related disciplines.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have completed the M.D. degree and two years of post-doctoral training. Interested applicants should submit curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation and a personal statement detailing their career interests.
