International Agency for Research on Cancer


Applications for training fellowships in 1998-99 are invited from junior scientists wishing to be trained in those aspects of cancer research related to the Agency's own programme: epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental and viral carcinogenesis, cell biology, cell genetics, molecular biology and mechanisms of carcinogenesis. Applications are encouraged from epidemiologists and laboratory scientists for interdisciplinary training that will facilitate the conduct of genetic and molecular epidemiological research. Applicants requiring basic training in cancer epidemiology will also be considered.

Applicants should be engaged in research in medical or allied sciences and intend to pursue a career in cancer research.

Fellowships are awarded for one year and are tenable at the Agency or in another suitable institution abroad. Fellows will, in general, be selected from applicants with some postdoctoral research experience related to cancer in medicine or the natural sciences. Applicants must have an adequate knowledge, both written and spoken, of English or the language of the country in which their fellowship is tenable.

Applications cannot be accepted and will not be considered if the applicant is receiving postdoctoral training abroad, or has already started postdoctoral work at the host institute. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received postdoctoral training abroad in cancer research.

Stipends will vary according to the cost of living in the country of study. The cost of travel for the applicant, and in certain circumstances, that of one dependant, will be met.

Please write to Cancer Research Fellowship Programme, International Agency for Research on Cancer, 150 cours Albert-Thomas, 69372 Lyon Cedex 08, France, e-mail: elakroud@iarc.fr.

Applications must reach the Agency no later than 31 December 1997.
