Cancer Research Institute Postdoctoral Fellowships
Pioneering Postdoctoral Fellowships in Immunology and Cancer Research
Cancer Research Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship Overview
For international students, CRI Irvington Postdoctoral Fellowship is a fully supported grant. Offering postdoctoral research studies is this scholarship. This grant offers up to $59,000 annually plus a $1,500 stipend to assist with covering the costs of the fellow’s research supplies, travel to conferences, and/or health insurance.
The CRI Irvington Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme supports talented young researchers seeking training in fundamental immunology or immunology for cancer at top universities and research institutes around the world.
Young, talented researchers are encouraged to pursue postdoctoral fellowships at the top universities and relocation facilities around the globe so they can learn the principles of immunology and cancer immunology.
The science consultative board’s committee will assess each applicant. The research that directly impacts the immunology of cancer is what CRI is most interested in.
