IARC - AUSTRALIA Postdoctoral Fellowship for Training in Cancer Research 2011-2012

Applications for a training fellowship in 2011-2012 are invited from postdoctoral scientists who are Australian nationals1, who intend to pursue a career in cancer research and wish to complete their training in those aspects of cancer research related to the Agency's mission and of priority for the Cancer Council Australia: to coordinate and conduct both epidemiological and laboratory research into the causes and prevention of cancer. Disciplines covered are: epidemiology (including genetic and molecular), biostatistics, bioinformatics, and areas related to mechanisms of carcinogenesis including molecular and cell biology, molecular genetics, epigenetics, and molecular pathology. There is an emphasis on interdisciplinary projects.

The Fellowship is tenable at the IARC in Lyon, France working in a research Group. The fellowship is for a period of one year, with the possibility of an extension for a second year subject to satisfactory appraisal. Candidates are required to have spent less than five years abroad (including doctoral studies) and have finished their doctoral degree within five years of the closing date for application or be in the final phase of completing their doctoral degree (M.D. or Ph.D.). The working languages at IARC are English and French. Candidates already working as a postdoctoral fellow at the Agency at the time of application or who have had any contractual relationship with IARC during the six months preceding the application deadline or who have already spent more than one year at IARC cannot be considered. Candidates must contact the host Group of their choice at IARC before application in order to interact closely to establish a proposed programme of mutual interest. Contact with the Group Heads can be made through the Agency's web site:

The fellowship must be taken up by 30 November 2011. The annual stipend is currently 31 860 Euros. The cost of travel for the Fellow, and in certain circumstances for dependants, will be met, a dependant's allowance paid, and health insurance covered.
