Other Postdoctoral Training Programs at the NIH
Many international doctoral degree recipients pursue postdoctoral training at the NIH as Visiting Fellows. In addition, the NIH has negotiated with almost a dozen participating countries, to create programs that provide opportunities for their recent doctoral degree recipients to train as postdocs at the NIH.
The Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) of the National Cancer Institute conducts a national and international program of population- and family-based studies to elucidate the environmental and genetic determinants of cancer. Fellowships of up to five years' duration under the supervision of DCEG scientists are available. Fellows design, carry out, analyze, and publish research studies related to the etiology of cancer in human populations, and gain experience with interdisciplinary, interagency, and multicenter collaborations. Fellowship applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
The CPFP offers postdoctoral fellowship opportunities in cancer prevention and control research for individuals from a multiplicity of disciplines, including behavioral, laboratory, and clinical sciences, epidemiology, ethics, and public health.
This program, housed on the NCI campus in Frederick, MD, accepts applications twice a year (spring and fall) for postdoctoral awards focusing on molecular and genetic aspects of cancer.
PRAT is a competitive postdoctoral fellowship program that supports research in one of the laboratories of the National Institutes of Health or the Food and Drug Administration. PRAT provides outstanding laboratory experiences, access to NIH's extensive resources, mentorship, career development activities and networking. The program places special emphasis on training fellows in all areas supported by NIGMS, including cell biology, biophysics, genetics, developmental biology, pharmacology, physiology, biological chemistry, computational biology, immunology, neuroscience, technology development and bioinformatics..
