Postdoctoral Fellowship Positions in Cancer Biology

The University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center has available several postdoctoral fellowships in basic and translational cancer biology research. These fellowships are supported by our National Cancer Institute T32CA154274 training grant.

This multidisciplinary fellowship training program focuses on basic and translational cancer research with the ultimate goal of enhancing clinical oncology.  The training program provides cross-disciplinary, mentored research training in cancer, and supports overall professional development through seminars, journal clubs, workshops, and career development. The program is well-suited to individuals who are highly motivated to seek broader training in addition to the traditional single lab-focused postdoctoral experience.

Research areas include:

  • Cancer genomics
  • Cancer and the microbiome
  • Computer aided drug design
  • Structural biology
  • Experimental therapeutics and drug resistance in leukemias
  • Tumor immunology and immunotherapy
  • Genetic modification of hematopoietic stem cells
  • Proteolytic signaling mechanisms in inflammation, tumor and vascular biology

The T32 training program provides a competitive stipend commensurate with qualifications, travel, health insurance, and tuition remission.  Appointments to the training grant will be for two years, with the possibility of an extension for another year depending on productivity; support for additional years may be available from the primary research mentor’s grants.  

Interested candidates should send or email a letter of intent and Curriculum Vitae to:
