  3. FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM - CANCER RESEARCH INSTITUTE
    SPONSOR: Cancer Research Institute
    PURPOSE: The goal of the fellowship program is to support talented postdoctoral researchers at leading universities and research centers who wish to receive training in cancer immunology or general immunology.
    DEADLINE: October 1
    SUMMARY: Established in 1971, the goal of the fellowship program is to support talented postdoctoral researchers at leading universities and research centers who wish to receive training in cancer immunology or general immunology. Fellowship candidates are evaluated by a panel of 15 scientists drawn from our distinguished Scientific Advisory Council, a group which includes five Nobel Prize winners and 17 members of the National Academy of Sciences. The Fellowship Committee considers the qualifications and experience of both the applicant and the sponsor, as well as the nature and feasibility of the intended line of inquiry.
    Fellowship appointments are for two years with a third year extension possible. The stipend is $32,000 for the first year, $34,000 for the second and $36,000 for the third.

The Diagnostic Imaging Program at NCI has created this e-mail distribution list to notify interested people about funding opportunities and other issues related to imaging research. Its primary purpose is to call your attention to important, relevant information on NIH Web pages, or in the NIH Guide. Occasionally it may be used to clarify areas of confusion, or disseminate answers to frequently asked questions.

If you wish to remain on the list, no action is necessary.

If you wish to be added to the list (or removed from it), please contact Johnnie Smith by return e-mail (js95x@nih.gov).

The staff of the Diagnostic Imaging Program places a high priority on communicating with and facilitating the work of researchers in the imaging community. We look forward to working with you.
