Job Information/Description:

The Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center (GLCCC) is seeking outstanding candidates for an NCI-funded T32 postdoctoral training program in Cancer Population Science (CPaS). We are currently recruiting for Spring, Summer or Fall 2024.

The program focuses on preparing trainees for independent research careers with a focus on clinical and community
translational research. Training faculty have a wide breadth of domain-specific expertise with funded research programs in
behavioral science, health disparities, epidemiology/biomarkers, cancer and aging, health services/health policy, and
survivorship. The program offers 2-3 years of funding, competitive salary and benefits, as well as funds for travel and
research support. The fellows will be mentored to develop their own program of funded research and have access to a
robust training environment.

GLCCC is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the nation’s capital. Fellows
participate in all phases of research, from study design through manuscript preparation, and participate in a formal
didactic program. There also are opportunities to participate in multidisciplinary grant writing and the development of
new projects and mentor undergraduate and graduate students.

Highlights of the training environment of the CPaS Program include:
› An established clinical consortium with access to the largest cancer population in the Mid-Atlantic
› A Minority Underserved NCORP site
› The Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Prevention
› Two funded CISNET modeling groups (Breast and Lung)
