The Vanderbilt Training Program in Molecular and Genetic Epidemiology of Cancer (Vanderbilt MAGEC) is accepting applications for a postdoctoral fellowship position. The MAGEC program is seeking candidates with a doctorate-level degree in epidemiology, genetics, or other related science who have a strong, demonstrable interest in cancer research. Fellows are matched with two mentors — one in their field and one in a complementary field — after which an individualized didactic training program will be tailored to complement candidate’s prior background and launch their independent research career. Training will include core and elective coursework, a multi-disciplinary mentoring team, rotations in the Vanderbilt Molecular Epidemiology Lab and Survey Research Shared Resources, and conduct of a research project, culminating in submission of a grant proposal to the National Institutes of Health.
Full details and application materials are available on the MAGEC website:
