Cancer Prevention and Control (CPC) Scholars
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, NY, is seeking applicants for a two-year post-doctoral Research Fellowship in Cancer Prevention and Control within the framework of a NCI-sponsored T32 Program with a focus on priority populations.
This multi-disciplinary training program aims to prepare a cadre of highly-trained postdoctoral scientists who will be dedicated to advancing cancer prevention and control in populations who are disproportionately vulnerable to develop and/or suffer from cancer. Ideal candidates are physicians who have completed an accredited clinical residency or graduates of PhD or equivalent programs in relevant fields (e.g., clinical psychology, epidemiology, health psychology, anthropology). All fellows will conduct mentored research and will be eligible to earn a Master of Science in Clinical Research (MSCR) through completion of a tailored curriculum integrating biological, medical, psychological, epidemiologic, behavioral, and community perspectives in cancer prevention and control. Stipend and tuition are provided along with an allowance for travel and research expenses.
We seek applicants with a commitment to our program’s aims who have aspirations for an academic research career. The CPC Research Training Program (https://icahn.mssm.edu/about/
