CRI Immuno-Informatics Postdoctoral Fellowship
Closing Date: 01/03/2024
This scheme supports early career scientists at academic research institutions worldwide who wish to receive dual training in immunology and data science.
The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) specialises in in immunology and cancer immunology research and provides funding for academic researchers at institutions around the world.
The CRI Immuno-Informatics Postdoctoral Fellowship supports qualified young scientists from at leading academic research institutions around the world who wish to receive dual training in immunology and data science. The fellowships will support both computational biologists who seek to strengthen their knowledge of immunology, and cancer immunologists who seek training in computational biology, data science, and/or genomics under the mentorship of acclaimed scientists in these disciplines. Applicants from diverse PhD fields who will train at the interface of cancer immunology and computational biology will also be considered. The fellowship aims to educate and empower the next generation of scientists with the knowledge and practical tools to pursue novel research ideas connecting immunology and computational biology.
Projects must be hypothesis-driven in basic or translational cancer immunology or immunology. Applicants should demonstrate how their proposed project impacts understanding of the immune system’s role in cancer by leveraging the use of innovative technologies and/or computational methods including high throughput ‘omic’ methods and data analyses.
Fellowships are for three years.
