The Vanderbilt Training Program in the Molecular and Genetic Epidemiology of Cancer (Vanderbilt MAGEC) is currently accepting applications for postdoctoral fellowships. The fellowship is an individualized didactic training program, tailored to complement the trainee’s background, and includes both core and elective coursework, a multi-disciplinary mentoring team, rotations in the Vanderbilt Molecular Epidemiology Lab and Survey Research Shared Resource, and the conduct of a research project. The fellowship culminates in the submission of a grant proposal to the National Institutes of Health. The goal of the program is to assist fellows in launching an independent career in epidemiological research.

The MAGEC program is specifically designed for:

  • PhDs in epidemiology or genetics who have an interest in cancer research
  • MDs who have an MPH degree or working experience in epidemiology

Under-represented minorities and individuals with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply. Per NIH requirements for the funding of this grant, candidates must be US citizens or permanent residents.

Please visit the MAGEC website for more information or to apply (acceptance ongoing).
