The CRI Irvington Postdoctoral Fellowship to Promote Racial Diversity supports qualified young scientists from underrepresented minorities at leading universities and research centers around the world who wish to receive training in fundamental immunology and cancer immunology. Fellows train under the guidance of a world-renowned immunologist, who sponsors the fellow and prepares him or her for a productive and successful career in cancer immunology. The program is open to Black, Hispanic, and Latino/Latina candidates, and will provide additional support for mentoring and career advancement to these individuals, as work to build a more racially diverse and inclusive community of scientists working in immuno-oncology.
CRI seeks hypothesis-driven, mechanistic studies in both immunology and tumor immunology that aim to directly impact our understanding of the immune system’s role in cancer.
A panel of scientists drawn from the CRI Scientific Advisory Council will rigorously evaluate each candidate, the intended sponsor and training environment, and the nature and feasibility of the proposed project.
The CRI Irvington Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is CRI’s longest-standing continuous program. Postdoctoral fellowships provide support to fund and train young immunologists and cancer immunologists at top universities and research centers around the world.
Fellows work and continue their training under the guidance of a world-renowned immunologist, who mentors the fellow and prepares him or her for a productive and successful career in cancer immunology.
Fellows receive up to $175,500 over three years to cover the cost of salary, insurance, and other research-related expenses, such as travel to conferences and meetings.
