Scholarship / Financial aid: postdoctoral fellowships
Date: six to twelve months
Deadline: 30 November 2012
Open to: junior scientists from any country who intend to pursue a career in cancer research
Since 1966, IARC has awarded more than 500 fellowships to junior scientists for research training in cancer. Approximately 85% of Fellows return to their home country on completion of their training, and around 82% remain active in cancer research. As a result, IARC Fellowships have made a substantial contribution to the development of cancer research in many countries.
At present, the IARC Fellowship programme is partially supported by the EC- FP7 Marie Curie Actions - People - COFUND .
The Fellowship Programme offers postdoctoral fellowships to junior scientists from any country who intend to pursue a career in cancer research and wish to complete their training at the IARC in Lyon, France working in a research Group. Applications from candidates from low- and medium-resource countries or applicants from any part of the world but with projects related to low- and medium-resource countries are encouraged.
A Senior Visiting Scientist Award is also offered for a qualified and experienced senior investigator who wishes to spend from six to twelve months at the IARC working on a collaborative project in a research area related to the Agency's programmes.
IARC is also offering an Expertise Transfer Fellowship to enable an established investigator to spend from six to twelve months in an appropriate host institute in a low- / medium-resource country in order to transfer knowledge and expertise in a research area relevant for the host country and related to the Agency's programmes.
Applications for all IARC fellowships (IARC-Ireland, IARC-Australia, Postdoctoral Fellowships for Training in Cancer Research, Senior Visiting Scientist Award, Expertise Transfer Fellowship) close on 30 November 2012.
