This is a 24-36-month mentored training program offered at The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill with focus area of research on cancer nanotechnology.  This program is funded by an NIH T32 grant.

Trainees selected for the program may choose to work with any of our 22 faculty members representing eleven departments in three Schools, including physical, and material scientists, biomedical engineers, basic biomedical scientists, pharmaceutical scientists, and clinician-scientists, all of whom have demonstrated strong interests and capabilities to work at the interface between nanoscience and cancer.

We combine two broad approaches to the training. The first approach involves active co-mentorship of the trainee's research project over a period of two years. In each case there will be a physical scientist and a biomedical scientist acting in tandem to guide trainee research. It is expected that this approach will provide unique multi-faceted training experience leading to significant contributions to cancer nanotechnology. The second approach involves trainee participation in workshops and courses that will broaden their knowledge and conceptual understanding of all areas of cancer nanotechnology. The topics of these workshops will reflect many of the major themes of the Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer. In addition to activities focused on postdoctoral researchers, the C-CNTP will also embark on a broadly based outreach program to disseminate concepts concerning cancer nanotechnology both within the university community and to the public at large.

Due to NIH restrictions for T32 training, all applicants must be either US permanent residents or US citizens.

Educational Requirements

The typical post-doctoral trainee will have completed highly relevant doctoral training in medical, pharmacy, chemistry, biomedical sciences or related area and was awarded Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D.

Qualifications and Expertise

- Full understanding of framing research question, research design and methods, and project implementation;

- Demonstrated proficiency in scientific/manuscript writing, grant writing, poster and oral presentations;

- Preferred candidates will have strong publication record and demonstrated experience in research study design and project implementation.
