NCI T32 Postdoctoral Trainee in Surgical Oncology
The NIH – NCI funded Duke Translational Research in Surgical Oncology training program will develop surgeons and perioperative physicians into physician-scientists, which is critical to the multidisciplinary approach needed to investigate novel approaches to cancer. The program will be led by a leadership team of academic surgeon-scientists with expertise in surgical oncology, pathology, immunology, and health outcomes research. Supplemented by mentors with expertise in basic, translational, and clinical research, this multidisciplinary team spans the breadth of surgical oncology research to address research questions in three distinct tracks:
1. Cancer Biomarkers and Biology of Local Disease
2. Cancer Immunotherapy
3. Clinical Investigation and Health Services Research
The Duke Surgical Oncology T32 supports six residents or postdocs during a two-year research fellowship. Potential applicants will be US citizens or permanent residents who are trainees in good standing at ACGME- and ABS-approved surgery training programs in the US and Canada. The application and selection process typically occurs during the PGY-2 year for a 2-year training period during PGY-3 and PGY-4.
Candidates must have an MD or equivalent degree and have completed or be in good standing in a clinical training program that will provide eligibility for certification in Surgery or a surgical subspecialty with research focused in oncology. Candidates outside of Duke are welcome to apply. Starting 7/1/2019, there are four open slots for trainees.
