UFHCC Postdoctoral Fellowships in Cancer Research

The objective of the UFHCC Postdoctoral Fellowships in Cancer Research program is to encourage outstanding graduate students with a demonstrated potential and interest in pursuing careers as independent researchers by facilitating their successful transition to postdoctoral research positions. Eligibility is limited to students who are in the final stages of completing their PhD program and seeking postdoctoral research opportunities for the next stage of establishing a successful career in cancer research.


At the UFHCC, there are opportunities to participate in many varied aspects of cancer research, including:

  • Cancer genetics
  • Pharmacology/toxicology
  • Metastasis
  • Therapy resistance
  • Radiation biology
  • Drug development
  • Epidemiology
  • Health outcomes
  • Molecular and cell biology
  • Cancer immunology
  • Stem cells
  • Molecular targeting
  • Cancer diagnostics
  • Cell signaling
  • Tumor microenvironment
  • Gene therapy

Research projects are planned and developed based on the postdoctoral fellows’ areas of interests and faculty expertise. Postdoctoral fellows are matched with research faculty who (1) take an active role in helping the fellows to plan and achieve their research goals; (2) facilitate opportunities for the fellows to participate in national and international research meetings; (3) assist the fellows in seeking opportunities to present papers or to interview for faculty positions; and (4) support the fellows in attending professional development activities, such as career development seminars, research symposia and grant-writing workshops.
