National Cancer Institute’s Graduate Student Recruiting Program
Applications are currently being accepted for the National Cancer Institute’s Graduate Student Recruiting Program (GSRP). The National Cancer Institute is committed to fostering a diverse community of scientists and expanding the representation among its trainees. The GSRP was instituted by the Center for Cancer Training and its Intramural Diversity Workforce Branch to recruit postdoctoral fellows to complete their training at NCI.
The Graduate Student Recruiting Program is a competitive program that aims to facilitate senior graduate students obtaining postdoc positions at NCI. The top 25 applicants are invited to NCI, and over the course of three days the attendees will learn about the research program & training opportunities, present their work at poster sessions, and interview with principal investigators (scheduled prior to arriving at the NIH). This program provides an advantage to graduate students because applicants are reviewed by NCI investigators looking to fill open positions and view GSRP as a source for qualified candidates. In addition, the poster sessions provide an excellent opportunity for networking and fostering collaborations with NCI investigators.
In order to be eligible, you must be enrolled in a Ph.D. program in the United States and on schedule to complete your PhD requirements by December 1, 2017. The GSRP is open to U.S. citizens and foreign nationals. Please visit here for more information about the program. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the GSRP Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
