The Department of Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine is seeking applicants for its new T32 Training Program in Surgical Oncology Research. The program supports surgical residents who will conduct two years of full-time research in basic, translational, or clinical (e.g. health services research, disparities, and clinical trials) research focusing on cancer-related topics. The trainee will work directly with an NIH-funded mentor of their choosing at the University of Pennsylvania. The program includes a robust educational component, including training in the responsible conduct of research. There are multiple opportunities to obtain a Master’s degree, such as in health policy research, epidemiology, biostatistics, or translational research. Salary and tuition support will be provided. A two-year commitment is mandatory.
We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. The University of Pennsylvania is an Equal Opportunity Employer. As stipulated by the NIH, a candidate must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
There are three openings for the academic year starting July 2021.
