Marci Kramish Campbell Dissertation Award Supporting Research Excellence in Cancer and the Population Sciences
This award honors Dr. Marci Kramish Campbell, a leader in cancer prevention and control, disparities, and survivorship research at UNC Chapel Hill and across the nation. Marci died much too soon from colon cancer in December, 2011. She was an exceptional mentor and believed producing the next generation of researchers was one of our most important aims.
Graduate students in any of the population disciplines (epidemiology, nutrition, behavioral sciences, health services and outcomes research, psychology, etc.) are encouraged to apply. Candidates should be in their final year with a dissertation defense that occurred or will occur between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012. The faculty sponsor must be a Center member.
The application package must include: a curriculum vitae; a one- to two-page, (single-spaced) research description; and at least two letters of support: one from the Center member faculty sponsor and at least one from another academic reference. One of the two references should be the chair of the student’s dissertation committee and that letter should state that the student will defend his/her thesis in the appropriate time frame. The application should be submitted as a single PDF.
Selection will be based on academic record, quality of the research, and supporting letters.
The deadline for application is 5:00 pm on Friday, May 11, 2012. Email the application to Michael S. O'Malley (email@example.com). Please also mail or deliver a hard copy of the application to: Michael S. O’Malley, Ph.D., Associate Director, UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, CB# 7295, Campus. A mid-June award date is anticipated.
This award program is supported by funds donated in Marci Campbell’s honor, the UNC Lineberger's Board of Visitors, and others.
