Physician Scientist Training in Cancer Medicine (T32) Program

Applications for the Physician Scientist Training in Cancer Medicine (T32) Program are accepted between August - December for positions beginning in July the following year. This training program provides a 1-2 year (July through June) period of support to train physician scientists in laboratory and/or translational research specifically related to cancer, and is open to postdoctoral (MD) trainees. In addition to the research conducted, it is expected that trainees in this program will identify and complete a course curriculum to include biostatistical methods, population health, and the responsible conduct of scientific research. Trainees and mentors will also be expected to attend an annual presentation of research by the trainees.  


Applicants will need to submit an application form, summary of proposed research and curriculum, two letters of reference, and curriculum vitae to Marilyn Larson by December 1. Mentors will need to submit a letter of support, including a description of the laboratory training environment and the proposed research project, and an NIH biosketch to Marilyn Larson also by December 1. Applications will be reviewed in December with positions offered toward the end of the year. We realize the deadline is tight this year, so please let us know if you have candidates in which it might take a bit longer to get us all the requisite information for review.  


For more information, please contact Marilyn Larson.


Application Deadline: December 1
