The Vanderbilt Training Program in the Molecular and Genetic Epidemiology of Cancer (Vanderbilt MAGEC) is now accepting applications for postdoctoral fellowships. The program is specifically designed for candidates with an MD or PhD in epidemiology or genetics/other related science with an interest in cancer research.

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.


Vanderbilt MAGEC fellowships, funded by an R25 grant from the National Cancer Institute, offer stipend support, Vanderbilt employee benefits, tuition for required and elective coursework, travel to one conference per year of training, payment of membership fees in up to 2 professional organizations, and funds for fellow’s research projects. Fellows will have the opportunity to work on a wide range of established projects and participate in a multitude of cancer epidemiology-related activities available at Vanderbilt’s Nashville campus.
