The MD Anderson and Rice Pre & Post-doctoral Fellowship Program in Translational Cancer is a NIH funded program that provides young talented scientists an intensive two-year research experience and training in cancer nanotechnology that is based on a close collaboration between The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and Rice University. The program is geared toward scientists who aim to pursue integrated, translational research that is focused on advancing promising new nanotechnology-based diagnostics and therapeutics to improve cancer care. Therefore, the training emphasizes understanding of biological and clinical needs in development of new technologies and in modification of existing technologies in nanoscience. Each fellow is co-mentored by two program faculty - one from MD Anderson Cancer Center and one from Rice University.
Program eligibility: per program requirement fellows “must be a citizen of the United States or have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence at the time of appointment.”
Interested candidates should send via e-mail their applications as a single pdf file with “T32 Cancer Nanotechnology Postdoctoral Application” denoted in the subject line.
Application packages are due by May 31 at midnight, Central Time and should include:
I. Personal information – name, postal address, e-mail address, phone number, citizenship, graduate school name, location, and your GPA. Also specify if you are applying for a postdoctoral or predoctoral position.
