Postdoctoral Studies in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences at Dartmouth

I have been awarded a new NIH training grant (R25 CA134286) to support postdoctoral students at the interface between bioinformatics, biostatistics and epidemiology with a focus on cancer research. The abstract from the grant can be found here. I have included below the advertisement. Le me know if you might be interested.

Dartmouth Medical School invites applications for a new 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 Biomedical 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.

Founded in 1797, Dartmouth Medical School draws on the resources of Dartmouth College, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and the Norris Cotton Cancer Center to support broad interdisciplinary programs in biomedical research, education, patient care and service. Located in the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire, the region offers idyllic landscapes and recreation, outstanding schools and cultural activities, and accessibility to major northeastern cities, including Boston (2.5 hours drive) and Montreal (3 hrs drive).

Submissions should include a letter describing the background and interests of the applicant, curriculum vitae, and names and contact information for three references.

Applicant materials should be mailed or e-mailed to:
Training Program for Quantitative Biomedical Sciences in Cancer
