2022 Underrepresented Postdoctoral Fellow Recruitment Day
*Note: Applications are now closed.
UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center is soliciting applications for the Underrepresented Postdoctoral Fellow Recruitment Day on October 12, 2022.
This event is intended for PhD students and postdoctorates interested in postdoctoral research training/fellowship opportunities at UNC Lineberger, including through one of our NIH-funded T32 grant-supported training programs. Travel, food and lodging expenses will be supported.
Candidates selected for the 2022 Underrepresented Postdoctoral Recruitment Day will also have the option to attend the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center 47th Annual Postdoctoral/Faculty Research Day the following day, Oct 13, 2022, during which candidates will have an opportunity to present their research if desired.
Eligible candidates must be currently enrolled in or have completed a PhD or equivalent doctoral degree program, and must identify as belonging to a group that is underrepresented group in the U.S. biomedical, clinical, behavioral and social sciences, in accordance with NIH guidelines. Eligibility is therefore extended to: individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups in biomedical research (Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, American Indians or Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders), individuals with disabilities (those with a physical or mental impairment substantially limiting major life activities, as described in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990); and Individuals from disadvantaged or low socioeconomic status backgrounds (see NIH guidelines for criteria). Women from the above groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
Candidates will be chosen and notified of selection shortly thereafter. If you are eligible and interested to attend, please submit an application.
