Cancer Genomic Pathology Research Fellows

Lab/Branch/Program: 
Laboratory of Pathology
Location: 
Bethesda
Research Area Keywords: 

cancer genomic pathology research 

Position Description: 

Research fellowship positions in the area of cancer genomic pathology are available in the Laboratory of Pathology (Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD) for physicians who have recently completed a pathology residency program. This research fellowship is intended to give pathologists sustained and focused training in cancer genomics in preparation for a career in academic pathology. Though this training is not eligible for board certification, the program will include time on the clinical cancer genomics service as well as substantial time in the areas of assay development and cancer genomic research applications. The Laboratory of Pathology is making a substantial investment in next-generation sequencing of solid tumors, including panel testing and whole-exome sequencing. Array-based testing for copy number and DNA methylation interrogation is also being implemented. These testing programs will provide a rich resource for exposure in state-of-the art clinical cancer genomics and will also dovetail with research opportunities. This training will initially be for one year with possible renewal for additional years depending on the fellow’s progress and the availability of positions. If the applicant is planning on pursuing subspecialty clinical fellowship training, this research training can be pursued either before or after the clinical fellowship.
