1. Postdoctoral Fellow - Cancer Prevention and Control Training Program T32

Posting Date: March 30, 2022

Postdoctoral Positions in the Yale Cancer Prevention and Control Training Program


The Yale School of Public Health and the Yale Comprehensive Cancer Center (YCC) have a Cancer Prevention and Control (CPC) T32 training award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH, T32 CA250803, 08/01/2020 – 07/31/2025), under which we are currently recruiting up to two postdoctoral fellows. Below are key aspects of the training program:

The Yale CPC Training Program aims to train pre- and post-doctoral fellows in five thematic areas: cancer etiology, cancer outcomes, lifestyle behavioral interventions, implementation science and community-engaged research.

The program is enabled by over 35 faculty members at the Yale Schools of Public Health and Medicine, who have an outstanding track record in CPC research and mentoring of junior investigators.

Fellows will also directly participate and interact with the YCC Research Programs and Disease-Aligned Research Teams.

Our training program will include a comprehensive mentoring program; a structured CPC Fellows research in progress meetings; participation in CPC research assistantships; and annual ½ day workshops in our 5 thematic areas.

Our program will select highly qualified and diverse candidates who wish to pursue a career in CPC. It is our goal that CPC Fellows will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to function independently, and develop and carry out innovative, impactful studies filling key gaps in CPC research, potentially changing the standard of care and impacting policy.

Selected candidates will receive stipend support at the prescribed NIH postdoctoral level based on NIH Notice NOT-OD-20-070, and may request training related expenses up to $11,000 each year.


Applicants should have a doctoral degree in epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health sciences, social and behavioral sciences, health policy, medicine, or other areas in life or data sciences, as well as a strong interest in CPC. Previous research experience in CPC is desirable but not required.

Applicants will need to meet NIH eligibility requirements for appointment to NRSA training grants. In particular, applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents at the time of application.

Applicants may not have received more than two years of previous support through a NIH postdoctoral training grant. Their support by the CPC T32 training program will not exceed two years.

Applicants must submit

A curriculum vitae that includes the names and contact information of two references; and

A one-page statement about your aims for postdoctoral training through the Yale CPC T32 training program.
