The Department of Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine has established a T32 Training Program in Surgical Oncology Research that is funded by the National Cancer Institute. The program supports surgical residents who will conduct two years of full-time research in basic, translational, or clinical (e.g. health services research, disparities, and clinical trials) research focusing on cancer-related topics. The trainee will work directly with an NIH-funded mentor of their choosing at the University of Pennsylvania. The program includes a robust educational component. There are multiple opportunities to obtain a Master’s degree, such as in health policy research, epidemiology, biostatistics, or translational research. A two-year commitment is mandatory.
We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. The University of Pennsylvania is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
There are three new positions for each academic year starting July 2021.
The goal of the T32 program is to train surgeon-scientists in the scientific method in order to make meaningful contributions to cancer research during their academic career. Trainees will participate in didactics, seminars, and journal clubs and complete a course in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). The T32 trainee will not have clinical responsibilities.
