Postdoctoral Fellow, National Cancer Institute (NCI) Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program

Jun 7,2021 | Consortium_staff Fellowships

Founded in 1987, the NCI Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program (CPFP) provides its fellows an opportunity to develop an independent research program in cancer prevention. The centerpiece of the program is mentored, multidisciplinary research. With input from senior scientists and program staff, each fellow develops original scientific projects and reports findings at meetings and in leading journals. The program provides:

  • Competitive stipends, relocation expenses, health insurance benefits, and travel allowances
  • Support for up to four years
  • Opportunity to earn your M.P.H., sponsored by NCI
  • Research opportunities with experienced NCI mentors
  • A cohort of fellows spanning STEM and other fields

The program is regularly evaluated and growing. Alumni across the country are taking the lead at cancer centers, universities, government agencies, research firms, and policy organizations, and in clinical practice. Many former fellows now act as mentors, assisting those who are following in their footsteps.

Applications are due by August 16.
