The UNC Lineberger Cancer Control Education Program (CCEP) is accepting applications for its postdoctoral fellowship program for 2020-21. CCEP prepares interested fellows for careers in cancer prevention and control research. Under the guidance of faculty preceptors, fellows will become competent in: research methods; understanding the fundamental issues of cancer prevention and control; developing expertise by mastering a content area; and gaining practical research experience. In addition, the program encourages fellows to: develop and submit applications for independent funding; present research findings at regional or national research meetings; and publish in peer reviewed journals. The program encourages diversity in fellows’ backgrounds and interests and provides flexible training to accommodate this diversity. Physicians and nurses without masters-level training are expected to pursue an advanced degree (MPH, PhD, DrPH). Fellows apply separately to degree programs, primarily at the UNC School of Public Health. Fellowships will begin in July 2020.
For more information about the program, visit the CCEP webpage. Applications must include a cover letter, CV, statement of research interests and 3 letters of recommendation. Email applications to sara.vandegrift@unc. Applications for 2020-2021 funding will be accepted until January 8, 2020.
