International Agency for Research on Cancer


Applications for training fellowships in 2001-02 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, 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 or in laboratory research will also be considered.

Fellows will, in general, be selected from applicants with a recent doctoral degree (Ph.D. or M.D.) in medicine or the natural sciences or who are in the final phase of completing their doctoral degree and wish to pursue a career in cancer research. Fellowships are awarded for one year and are tenable in any suitable institution abroad. Applicants must have an adequate knowledge, both written and spoken, of English or the language of the country in which their Fellowship is tenable. Fellowships must be taken up by 31 December 2001 and cannot be started before the doctoral degree is formally obtained.

Applications cannot be accepted and will not be considered if the applicant has previously received postdoctoral training abroad, or has already started postdoctoral work at the host institute.

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.
