Post-doctoral Fellowship in Cancer Research
SUNY Upstate Cancer Center postdoctoral training fellowship program (PFP) provides opportunities for talented post-doctoral scientists to obtain world-class preparation for a career in cancer research, including basic, translational, and clinical research in cancer biology, therapeutics, prevention, and public health. The Cancer Center PFP will support qualified candidates for post-doctoral training with our faculty members who participate in one or more of our Research Programs.
SUNY Upstate is the only university in the Central New York region offering medical, nursing, allied health professions and graduate schools dedicated to biomedical research. SUNY Upstate offers a unique training program as well as state-of-the-art core facilities that will facilitate the acquisition of unrivaled expertise in cancer research.
Candidate qualifications and recruitment
Applicants must not be currently employed at SUNY Upstate and should be doctoral students close to degree completion or postdocs having received their doctoral degree within the last three years. External applicants can apply directly or be sponsored by a CC member who is interested in becoming the candidate's advisor. Applicants will be expected to apply for extramural funding, including NIH awards (F32 fellowships and K series) or other extramural sources of support. Preference will be given to US citizens and permanent residents, although international postdocs with strong qualifications are highly encouraged to apply. Advertising and recruitment will be coordinated by the Office of Post-Doctoral Affairs and the Cancer Center. Applicants will have access to a list of PIs with current openings and their respective research projects. During the application process, candidates should identify their preferred host laboratory as well as alternative labs. The CC-PFP committee will screen applicants and approve the best applicant/PI matches based on merit and the likelihood of achieving the CC goals for training in cancer research.
