Our trainees include undergraduate, graduate, and medical students as well as post-doctoral and clinical fellows. They work with the faculty who are Core Members of the Rogel Cancer Center, spanning the areas of basic science, clinical research, and population studies.

Postdocs, grants, and other opportunities with upcoming deadlines

Below are fellowship and grant opportunities at both the University of Michigan and cancer centers across the country. If you're a postdoctoral fellow, house officer, graduate, or undergraduate student who works with a Rogel Cancer Center faculty mentor, make sure you are registered for trainee membership to be the first to learn of these opportunities.

NCI Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Award (F99/K00) Opportunity due by October, 10, 2022

The Rogel Cancer Center is pleased to announce the internal competition for the F99/K00 Transition Award for predoctoral scientists. The details of this NCI-sponsored award can be found on the National Institutes of Health webpage.

The University of Michigan can nominate a single candidate who will be a 3rd or 4th year Ph.D. student in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences, and who has demonstrated a commitment to a career in cancer research as well as clear potential for a future career as an independent cancer research scientist. Note that this is not an NRSA award so international applicants are eligible.

Interested applicants should submit the following documents, compiled into a single pdf, through Competition Space by 5 p.m. Monday, October 10, 2022:

  1. Specific aims page (following the very clear and unique instructions of the RFA)
  2. Summary statement of interest that outlines the applicant’s commitment to a career in cancer research, highlighting their current and future research goals (max 1 page)
  3. Applicant biosketch
  4. Sponsor biosketch

Applications will be reviewed by a panel of senior faculty in the cancer center who are knowledgeable in the nominees’ research areas. Faculty with conflicts of interest (e.g., applicant sponsors/mentors) will be excluded from the review process and will not participate in the selection. A final, complete application will be due to the NCI on November 18, 2022. (This is much later notification than in years past.)

Please contact Michelle Daoud ([email protected]) with questions.
