Call for applications: Rice, MD Anderson
Nanotech T32 Fellowship

Rice University and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center are collecting applications to the Cancer Nanotech T32 program. The joint program, which is funded by a five-year, $1.8 million grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), trains graduate students and postdoctoral research associates to translate nanotechnology breakthroughs into clinical treatments for cancer patients.

Interested candidates should send via email their applications as a single pdf file with “2017 T32 Cancer Nanotechnology Application” denoted in the Subject Line. Application packages for this year are due by May 31st, midnight CST and should include:

I. Personal information – name, postal address, e-mail address, phone number, citizenship, graduate school name, location, and your GPA. Also specify if you are applying for a postdoctoral or predoctoral position.

II. Cover letter describing specific research interests and your preferred co-mentors (no more than 1 page)

III. A copy of your CV

IV. Names of three references

V. For Rice predoctoral candidates only, submit your transcript.

Rice applicants email Stacey Kalovidouris at sk7@rice.edu. MD Anderson applicants email Mai Dinh at Mai.Dinh@mdanderson.org.

For more information see program brochure (pdf). 

The new training program has two tiers: a predoctoral program that provides mentorship, training and funding for two years to qualifying students who have been accepted into a Rice doctoral program in bioengineering, chemistry or applied physics; and a postdoctoral program that provides two-year fellowships to recent Ph.D. awardees with training in physical science, chemistry or bioengineering with a demonstrated background and interest in nanotechnology. Holders of an M.D. degree will be eligible if they show a strong interest in translational cancer nanotechnology research.
