Mentored Junior Faculty Fellowship
The Duncan Family Institute Mentored Junior Faculty Fellowship in Cancer Prevention Research supports the critical transition of individuals from training positions to junior faculty, launching them towards research independence. This fellowship fills a gap between support available to postdoctoral fellows and other early career scientists transitioning to a faculty position at the assistant professor level.
These appointments are for two years, subject to acceptable progress towards agreed to milestones.
