Postdoctoral Fellowship for Training in Cancer Research 2014-2015

Applications are now open for a postdoctoral fellowship for training in cancer research at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in Lyon, France.

IARC is part of the World Health Organisation. Its mission is to coordinate and conduct research on the causes of human cancer, the mechanisms of carcinogenesis, and to develop scientific strategies for cancer prevention and control.

Applications for a training fellowship in 2014-2015 are welcomed from Australian postdoctoral scientists, who intend to pursue a career in cancer research and wish to complete their training in those aspects of cancer research related to the Agency's mission and of priority for Cancer Council Australia: to coordinate and conduct both epidemiological and laboratory research into the causes and prevention of cancer.

The Fellowship is tenable at the IARC in Lyon, France working in a research Group. The fellowship is for a period of two years, the second year being subject to satisfactory appraisal. Candidates are required to have finished their doctoral degree within five years of the closing date for application or be in the final phase of completing their doctoral degree (M.D. or Ph.D.).

The fellowship must be taken up by 30 November 2014 and applications must be submitted online by 30 November 2013.
