Position Description: 

The Fellowships in Surgical Oncology Research and Cancer Immunotherapy at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) encompass two time-honored programs combining bench-side research in surgical oncology with training in clinical research through direct patient care.  The unique environment of the Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) allows for direct bedside-to-bench and bench-to-bedside translational research under the direction of world leaders in surgical oncology.

The two-year Surgical Oncology Research Fellowship includes 18 months of bench laboratory experience in one of the many NCI laboratories and 6 months of clinical rotations over three surgical oncology subspecialties. Clinical research opportunities are available over the entire 2-year period. Additional optional research years may be available.

The three-year Fellowship in Cancer Immunotherapy incorporates an additional year of clinical experience in the management of patients undergoing cell-based cancer immunotherapy developed in the Surgery Branch of the NCI. Basic science experience is dedicated to work in one of the multiple immunotherapy laboratories within the NCI and participation in this fellowship is complemented by additional didactic opportunities in cancer immunotherapy.
