TRIUMPH Postdoctoral Research Fellow - Translational Cancer ResearchPosted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2019-Nov-13
The Cancer Prevention & Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) TRIUMPH Postdoctoral Fellowship Program at MD Anderson Cancer Center is a post-doctoral program providing unique training in clinical and translational research. Our goal is to recruit talented and productive young PhDs and help them to further develop through cutting-edge research projects and structured programmatic enrichment such as didactic course work, clinical rotations, and unique team-science mentorship. The comprehensive training and enrichment provided ensure postdocs have the skills, rigor of research, and experiences needed to pursue fruitful careers in clinical and/or translational cancer research.
All fellow are fully funded and receive salary (according to NIH postdoc guidelines), fringe, employee health care benefits, and a $750 annual travel stipend to present their research at conferences. This is a three-year training program. First year postdoctoral fellows participate in a series of didactic clinical course work and strategically matched clinical rotations, while pursuing research in a basic or translational research laboratory. Second and third year fellows are co-mentored by a basic science/translational scientist mentor and a physician/clinical scientist mentor on clinical/translational research projects. The expectation for our post-docs is that by the end of their 3-year training, they will have first authored at least 2 papers in high impact journals. Our multidisciplinary training program will award a certificate upon completion.
TRUMPH faculty lead research in a number of cancer research-related areas including cell and membrane biology, immunology and immunotherapy, biochemistry and pharmacology, cancer biology, therapeutics design, DNA damage and repair, RNA biology, cell signaling, genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, imaging physics, and tumor microenvironment research. Our program faculty includes more than 30 of the top pioneers globally in cancer research. All are outstanding research faculty who have long histories of extramural funding and excellence in mentoring and training postdoctoral fellows. We are currently recruiting in all cancer-related research areas.
