The Cancer Research Institute postdoctoral fellowships provide support to fund and train young immunologists and cancer immunologists at top universities and research centers around the world.
Fellows work and continue their training under the guidance of a world-renowned immunologist, who mentors the fellow and prepares him or her for a productive and successful career in cancer immunology.
Funding & Duration
Fellows receive up to USD $175,500 (approx. AUD $245,600) over three years to cover the cost of salary, insurance, and other research-related expenses, such as travel to conferences and meetings.
