The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth
invites applications for a postdoctoral training and career
development program designed to cross-train scientists in the
fields of bioinformatics, biostatistics and epidemiology for
cancer research in the biomedical sciences. The Training
Program for Quantitative Population Sciences in Cancer at
Dartmouth is supported by the Cancer Education and Career
Development program of the National Cancer Institute. Trainees
with doctorates in diverse biomedical sciences will choose a
secondary focus area among the three core disciplines and
participate in a combination of structured, group learning
activities and individually designed mentored research
opportunities. Stipends, course tuition and certificates of
training are provided.
Applicants must possess a PhD, combination
PhD/MD, or MD degree. Applicants with a PhD in one of the
three core disciplines (bioinformatics, biostatistics and
epidemiology) are encouraged to apply for the purpose of
receiving training in one of the other two disciplines.
Highly qualified applicants with doctoral degrees in other
biomedical sciences or in clinical medicine are also eligible
and are encouraged to apply.
Candidates who are current or former PIs on NIH Small
Grants (R03s) or Exploratory/ Developmental Grants (R21s) are
eligible. Individuals appointed to the program must be
citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States (U.S.),
or must have been lawfully admitted to the U.S. for permanent
residence. Individuals on temporary visas are not eligible.
Candidates are appointed for at least 2 years and can be
supported for up to 3 years. PIs in the program lead research
efforts in lifecourse epidemiology, molecular epidemiology,
biostatistical and bioinformatics methods development,
interventional studies, medical bioinformatics, genomics,
epigenomics, microbiome, and genome-wide association studies.
The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth is
an academic institution located in Lebanon, New Hampshire in
