Thank you for your interest in the Cancer Prevention and Control (CPC) in Priority Populations postdoctoral research training program. Our overarching objective is to develop clinical and non-clinical postdoctoral scientists dedicated to advancing CPC in priority populations who are disproportionately vulnerable to develop and/or suffer from cancer. Progress toward improving care and outcomes for priority populations has been slow, indicating a need to approach research through a new lens. A promising new lens is multidisciplinary team science, introducing a variety of perspectives to address a single question. Our goal is to train and launch the careers of a new generation of researchers who are prepared to apply a multidisciplinary approach to CPC research targeting priority populations. We aim to recruit candidates who show promise as future CPC investigators and will commit to providing outstanding mentorship, fostering a multidisciplinary team science environment and facilitating the attainment of academic career and life skills needed to pursue and sustain long-term success as independent investigators.
We encourage you to explore and read more about our curricular and research opportunities.
