Postdoctoral Fellowships

If you are interested in a postdoctoral fellowship position with one of CBL's scientists, please contact the individual scientist directly by e-mail (see list below) with a letter of intent. Attach your C.V. and include at least 3 references. Visit the Research Directory to learn more about each scientist.

The Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA) is the general award mechanism that is used by NCI to support stipends for U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Fellowships are made for 2 years initially, but may be reviewed and renewed annually for up to 5 years, based on merit. In addition to the CRTA, NCI/CCR offer several other specialized fellowship programs:

Visiting Fellowships for Foreign Graduates

Foreign graduates who are seeking NCI postdoctoral fellowships should visit the NIH Visiting Program for information on training programs that have been set up specifically for foreign scientists. The NIH Visiting Program Web site provides detailed information on types of awards, requirements, travel, and how to apply. Visiting fellowship awards are generally made for 2 years, but 1-year awards are an option. Fellowships are renewable for up to 5 years, based on merit.
