NCI Cancer Prevention Postdoctoral Fellow

The Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health’s Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences and the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center Population Sciences invite applications for a joint post-doctoral fellowship in cancer prevention and control. The postdoctoral research fellowships, which begin in September 2018, are funded for two years and do not result in a degree. The program’s objective is to train researchers in the design and evaluation of cancer prevention and control. Applicants may work in any area related to cancer prevention. Potential areas of research include health care providers, worksites, schools or youth, or under-served populations, in addition to prevention policy.

The grant covers $58,000 in salary and $3,154 for research expenses for two years.
