At present, the IARC Fellowship programme is partially supported by the EC- FP7 Marie Curie Actions - People - COFUND .
The Fellowship Programme offers postdoctoral fellowships to junior scientists from any country who intend to pursue a career in cancer research and wish to complete their training at the IARC in Lyon, France working in a research Group. Applications from candidates from low- and medium-resource countries or applicants from any part of the world but with projects related to low- and medium-resource countries are encouraged.
A Senior Visiting Scientist Award is also offered for a qualified and experienced senior investigator who wishes to spend from six to twelve months at the IARC working on a collaborative project in a research area related to the Agencys programmes.
IARC is also offering an Expertise Transfer Fellowship to enable an established investigator to spend from six to twelve months in an appropriate host institute in a low- / medium-resource country in order to transfer knowledge and expertise in a research area relevant for the host country and related to the Agencys programmes.
The deadline is now closed for all IARC fellowships (IARC-Ireland, IARC-Australia, IARC Postdoctoral Fellowships for Training in Cancer Research, Senior Visiting Scientist Award, Expertise Transfer Fellowship).
INFORMATION FOR APPLICANTS: Applications can be submitted initially by e-mail in order to meet the deadline. However, the original, signed application and supporting documents must reach us by post.
