Postdoctoral Training Opportunities

Postdoctoral training is available in the labs of individual cancer center mentors. HCI postdocs are encouraged to complete individual development plans and establish mentorship committees of two to three faculty.

Postdocs are eligible for HCI’s Susan Cooper Jones Fellowship, which recognizes an outstanding research contribution or exceptional promise, for internal NextGen pilot grants to support collaborative research with other trainees.

HCI provides travel fellowships for PhD and MD postdoctoral fellows to attend the annual meetings of the American Association of Cancer Research and American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Postdoctoral trainees are supported by the Huntsman Alliance for Postdocs, which is broadly focused on networking and career development and is integrated into the U of U postdoctoral fellow association.

Research at Huntsman Cancer Institute is divided into four research programs, including laboratory, clinical, and population-based efforts. Prospective postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to contact faculty directly regarding available opportunities. Search for faculty in the Cancer Center Research Programs or via the Cancer Investigator Directory.
