Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunity - CPRIT TRIUMPH (Cancer Research)

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is currently accepting applications for the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas' (CPRIT) Translational Research in Multi-Disciplinary Program (TRIUMPH) Postdoctoral Fellowship in translational cancer research. This three-year fellowship provides basic, translational, and clinical training and aims to further develop talented PhD or MD/PhDs into successful clinical/translational research scientists.

This is a three-year training program. First year postdoctoral fellows participate in a series of didactic clinical course work offered at the MD Anderson UTHealth Graduate School (GSBS), MD Anderson Cancer Center, or the UTHealth McGovern School of Medicine and strategically matched clinical rotations, while pursuing research in a basic or translational research laboratory. Second and third year fellows are co-mentored by a basic science/translational scientist mentor and a physician/clinical scientist mentor on clinical/translational research projects.

Applications are reviewed quarterly, with the next cycle due dates of December 31, 2018 and March 31, 2019. Additional information regarding eligibility, application process, and current trainees and program alumni profiles are found at on the the CPRIT TRIUMPH website.  

The TRIUMPH postdoc will earn a certificate upon successful completion of the program. A long-term goal of this program is to produce translational scientists who can be teamed with suitable physician scientists to be a primary investigator in a translational research laboratory.
