This position is part of an NCI-supported training program (T32) and emphasizes interdisciplinary basic science research training for a minimal period of two years for qualified individuals who are committed to pursuing a career in academic oncologic surgery. Postdoctoral researchers with broad backgrounds will receive mentored, laboratory-based training through participation in research projects, courses, seminars, short courses, workshops and journal clubs.
