The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is the largest of 27 Institutes and Centers that comprise the U.S. National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. As leader of the National Cancer Program, the NCI coordinates many different research efforts and disciplines to improve the prevention, control, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship of cancer. Across the country and globally, NCI staff work with experts in technology development, information management, basic science, translational and clinical research, and health care delivery to move toward this goal.
Because of the work of NCI scientists and cancer researchers throughout the U.S. and the rest of the world, real progress is being made against cancer:
• More people are surviving after cancer and fewer people are getting cancer.
• A large majority of children with cancer survive.
• Today’s treatments have increased survival rates in many types of cancer.
• Drugs that target specific molecular changes involved in cancer are now common.
• Vaccines can help prevent some cancers.
Continued success against cancer depends on a vibrant, well-trained workforce, and training is a priority at the NCI. In 2011, the NCI was ranked one of the top 20 U.S. institutions (of a total 85) for postdoctoral training by The Scientist Magazine. At the NCI, fellows have access to workshops and training in scientific and professional development skills, state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, technology, and equipment, mentoring in a collaborative environment, and lectures and courses by eminent scientists. The NCI offers fellows competitive stipends commensurate with experience, medical insurance, and paid leave. The NCI/NIH/HHS is an equal opportunity employer.
Main Recruitment Areas:
The NCI is recruiting for postdoctoral positions in the Center for Cancer Research, the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, and the Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program.
