The Vanderbilt Training Program in Molecular and Genetic Epidemiology of Cancer (Vanderbilt MAGEC) is now accepting applications for 3-year postdoctoral fellowships.

Training will include core and elective coursework, a multi-disciplinary mentoring team, rotations in the Vanderbilt Molecular Epidemiology Lab and Survey Research Shared Resources, and conduct of a research project, culminating in submission of a grant proposal to the National Institutes of Health.
