The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program (CPFP) is now accepting applications for Cancer Prevention Fellows. This is a unique postdoctoral training opportunity for scientists and clinicians in the fields of cancer prevention and control.

The CPFP is multidisciplinary by nature, as we select fellows from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds to include basic science, epidemiology, health services research, medicine, behavioral science, nursing, social science, nutrition, health education/health promotion, law, dentistry, statistics, geography, exercise science, and engineering. Unlike some postdoctoral programs, our fellows have the opportunity to select their own preceptors, and develop and lead research activities based on their own interests.

The Program provides

- Up to 4 years of financial support

- Master of Public Health (MPH) or an equivalent degree at any one-year accredited university program, if needed depending on prior training 

- Mentored research opportunities at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

- Dedicated training to build scientific and leadership skills

- Competitive stipends, relocation expenses, travel allowances, and more

Duration

The typical duration in the CPFP is 4 years (year 1: master's degree; years 2-4: NCI Summer Curriculum in Cancer Prevention and mentored research).

To be considered for the CPFP, you must meet the following eligibility requirements

Doctoral degree
You must have an MD, PhD, JD or other doctoral degree in a related discipline (e.g., basic science, epidemiology, health services research, medicine, behavioral science, nursing, social science, nutrition, health education/health promotion, law, dentistry, statistics, geography, exercise science, or engineering).
Applicants currently enrolled in accredited doctoral degree programs that have not yet fulfilled all degree requirements are welcome to apply with the understanding that all requirements will be completed before the start of the CPFP. Assurance to this effect must be supplied in writing by the chair of the dissertation committee (e.g., Ph.D. candidates) or the dean of the school (e.g., M.D. candidates).
Foreign education must be comparable to that received in the United States.

Prior postdoctoral experience
You must have less than five years of relevant postdoctoral research experience at the time of appointment.

Citizenship
You must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States at the time of application OR
