We are pleased to announce the availability of Post-Doctoral Fellowships in cancer epidemiology and cancer survivorship at the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center for an earliest start date of September 1, 2018. Fellowship applications are accepted continuously and are reviewed as they are received. Training involves research in a mentored environment in the areas of cancer epidemiology and cancer survivorship research. Funding (stipend, health insurance) usually is for two years. To be eligible, you must be a U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident. The purpose of these interdisciplinary funded positions is to prepare Fellows for careers as independent investigators engaged in cancer epidemiology and cancer survivorship research. Successful candidates will serve on transdisciplinary project teams (NIH-funded), implement research protocols in cancer epidemiology and cancer survivorship, participate in data collection and analysis, and develop ancillary studies which broaden the scope of funded protocols and further individual research interests. The Fellow will participate fully in the grant writing and publication process and coordinate the transfer of material across collaborating institutions throughout the United States and Canada. Institutions which are involved in NIH-funded studies lead by Indiana University include Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, University of Pennsylvania, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, University of Chicago, Vanderbilt Genetics Institute, Loyola University, M.D. Anderson, Harvard School of Public Health, Princess Margaret Hospital, and many others, allowing ample networking opportunities for the Fellow. They will share in authorship and investigator status, in a manner commensurate with their effort and responsibilities. They will conduct or work with programmer analysts to conduct data analyses for selected projects, applying a broad knowledge of analytic methods and using relevant statistical programs, and consulting with biostatisticians and other programmer analysts as appropriate. They will learn to conduct thorough reviews of the scientific literature.
