Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Oncogenic Signals and Chromosome Biology

Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

The NIH funded T32 fellowship program in Oncogenic Signals and Chromosome Biology (OSCB) has developed from a general interest in cellular responses and signal pathways integrating both responses to the cellular environment mediated by cell surface receptors and to signals initiated inside of the cell nucleus such as damage to DNA. While diverse in nature, these signals are often inseparable and interconnected by kinases and cascades of phosphorylation.

The majority of the research projects among Mentors in the OSCB Fellowship Program involve detailed mechanistic studies in vitro which complement in vivo studies using animal models. Mentors are drawn both from the UC Davis cancer research community and from scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory; a formal collaborative agreement brings the two institutions together for cancer-related research.

This program has a"rolling" application deadline, meaning applications are accepted anytime and consideration will be given if and when there is a vacancy or a date certain for a vacancy.

The OSCB program offers postdoctoral fellowships to individuals holding PhD, MD, or MD/PhD degrees. Applicants will have had zero, one, two, three, or four years of prior fellowship experience.

The NCI/NSRA grant for OSCB provides for four fellowships annually with a budget for one fellow with no prior fellowship experience, two fellows with one year of prior fellowship experience, one fellow with two years of prior fellowship experience. Salary is stipulated annually by the NSRA based on years of fellowship experience. Those with additional post-doctoral experience will receive supplemental salary from their Mentor. Fellows are appointed for one year with a possibility of one extension for a second year if effort to seek other external funding is shown and progress is satisfactory.

Applicants should first contact a trainer associated with the program before applying, in order to request a statement endorsing their candidacy.
