The Image Guided Cancer Therapy (IGCT) T32 Training Program at MD Anderson Cancer Center is currently recruiting clinician scientists and scientists for open postdoctoral fellow positions in image-guided cancer therapy research.

The IGCT T32 Training Program provides immersive, multi-disciplinary research training in the field of image guided cancer therapy, including surgery, interventional and diagnostic radiology, radiation oncology, imaging, and correlative pathology, guided by world-renowned research mentors who direct high impact translational projects. Trainees will engage in clinical shadowing with IGCT T32 faculty in key areas of image guided cancer therapy to gain perspectives from a broad range of research and clinical expertise. The program features cross-disciplinary mentoring and support from established clinician scientists and investigators, who will work with you to develop personalized goals and an adaptable training plan to fit your career goals. Guided mentoring and support in grant writing will help trainees to write and submit for independent funding to help prepare for the faculty phases of their careers.

They will gain clinical perspectives from a wide array of experts across modalities and anatomical sites through didactic learning, seminars, and clinical shadowing. Trainees will work with their unique cross-disciplinary faculty mentoring teams to establish and follow a personalized and adaptable training plan catered to their specific career goals. Trainees will also receive mentorship and support in writing and submitting independent grant applications (e.g., NIH K awards) that will help prepare them for future faculty positions. This program is two years in length.
