Hillman Postdoctoral Fellows for Innovative Cancer Research

Closing date: October 31, 2023

UPMC Hillman Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, invites applications for the Hillman Postdoctoral Fellowship in Innovative Cancer Research. Hillman Postdoctoral Fellows for Innovative Cancer Research will receive a stipend 20% above the NIH recommendation for two years and a $10,000 career development account. Hillman Postdoctoral Fellows for Innovative Cancer holding a PhD must submit a K99 application during the interval of the award. Accordingly, candidates for the 2023 competition must have received their PhD no earlier than October 31, 2021. Fellows who are clinician scientists and U.S. citizens or permanent residents can apply for a K08 award instead. Successful candidates must be training in the laboratories of full members* of UPMC Hillman Cancer Center.

Interested applicants should send their CV; a 1-page statement of research interests, including the identity of their postdoctoral mentor(s); and three letters of recommendation to Dr. Moira Hitchens (hitchensm2@upmc.edu) by midnight October 31, 2023.
