Postdoc Openings – Carolina Cancer Nanotechnology T32 Training Program
Chapel Hill, NC 27599 United States
Dependent on qualifications and experience.
Stipends pursuant to NIH NOT-OD-21-049
Research and Development
Join an elite group of scientists and innovators using multidisciplinary concepts and skills to improve cancer diagnosis and therapy based on tools and discoveries made in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
The Carolina Cancer Nanotechnology Training Program is a 24-36-month mentored postdoctoral training program that is offered at The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill (UNC Chapel Hill) with focus area of research on cancer nanotechnology. This program includes 22 faculty members representing eleven departments in three Schools, including physical, and material scientists, biomedical engineers, basic biomedical scientists, pharmaceutical scientists, and clinician-scientists, all of whom have demonstrated strong interests and capabilities to work at the interface between nanoscience and cancer. These individuals will serve as mentors to trainees, utilizing two broad approaches. The first approach involves active co-mentorship of the trainee’s research project over a period of two years. In each case there will be a physical scientist and a biomedical scientist acting in tandem to guide trainee research. It is expected that this approach will provide unique multi-faceted training experience leading to significant contributions to cancer nanotechnology. The second approach involves trainee participation in workshops and courses that will broaden their knowledge and conceptual understanding of all areas of cancer nanotechnology. The topics of these workshops will reflect many of the major themes of the Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer. In addition to activities focused on postdoctoral researchers, the C-CNTP will also embark on a broadly based outreach program to disseminate concepts concerning cancer nanotechnology both within the university community and to the public at large.
Postdoctoral trainee will have completed highly relevant doctoral training in medical, pharmacy, chemistry, biomedical sciences, nanotechnology and cancer biology, or related area and awarded a Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D.
Qualifications and Experience
- Full understanding of framing research question, research design and methods, and project implementation.
- Demonstrated proficiency in scientific/manuscript writing, grant writing, poster and oral presentations.
- Preferred candidates will have strong publication record and demonstrated experience in research study design and project implementation.
This NCI sponsored postdoctoral training program and all applicants must be either US citizens, non-citizen nationals or permanent residents with evidence of superior academic performance, previous research or clinical experience and publications.
