Deadline: 30 October 2018

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is funding Cancer-Translational Nanotechnology Training (Cancer-TNT) Program led by Drs. Jianghong Rao and Dean Felsher.

The concept of this three-year postdoctoral fellowship program is to train early career scientists with the skills and educational backgrounds from both enginering, materials science, chemistry, cancer biology and medicine.

This program can be a good opportunity for talented scientists to learn the intracacies of merging nanotechnology with the biological and medical sciences, spefically for the use in cancer, in addition to becoming leaders for the rapidy growing field of cancer nanotechnology.

Duration: The program is a diverse and synergistic 3-year training program with a combined effort of 25 faculty and 9 Departments fromv3 schools to train the upcoming generation of interdisciplinary researchers who will pursue study in cancer research and clinical translation.

How to Apply: To apply for a Cancer-TNT fellowship position, applicants must submit the following as a single PDF file for all items except letters of recommendation by email to Billie Robles at
