National Cancer Center has established
funding for a limited number of post-doctoral fellowships
for qualified applicants
to receive training and experience in molecular genetics and
the cellular aspects of cancer biology and tumor immunology.
Funding is also available for post-doctoral fellowships in children's cancer research, including fighting children's leukemia.
Fellowship Application Guidelines
Preference will be given to studies that have direct relevance to the
diagnosis and treatment of human cancer. Fellowships from NCC are
established at $40,000. per annum for post-doctoral awards. Fellowships are intended for
applicants under age 35 with less than two years of post- doctoral
laboratory experience, except in extenuating circumstances. Fellowships
are also limited to applicants having received no more than one
prior fellowship or one career development award. Individuals receiving concurrent support from another
organization are not eligible to apply.
Fellowship awards are not necessarily restricted to salary. Depending
on the circumstances, part of the funds may be used for supplies
or other valid expenses, which should be listed in the proposed
budget. NCC reserves the right to delete any item
it deems inappropriate.
The fellowship may be transferable upon application and review,
in the event that the fellow leaves the sponsoring organization.
Fellowships generally are
extended for a second year. However, adequate progress must have been demonstrated
during the first year as evidenced through a progress
report submitted with renewal application.
Awards are limited to one per laboratory. There can be several
different applications if they are on different topics. However,
only one award could be made per lab in any round of applications.
NCC fellowship grants do not include
funds for institutional overhead and a statement by the institution
accepting this condition is required.
