About the program:

The GSRP is a competitive program that provides students the opportunity to explore postdoctoral fellowships at the NCI. During the two-day program in May invited applicants will visit the NIH, learn about the various resources that NIH and NCI have to offer, and network with NCI investigators, staff, and current postdocs. In addition, the poster sessions provide an excellent opportunity to network and foster collaborations with scientists here at the NIH. NCI investigators looking to fill open positions view GSRP as a source of qualified candidates.

The Graduate Student Recruiting Program, sponsored by the Center for Cancer Training, provides senior-level graduate students with a two-day introduction to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and an opportunity to explore postdoctoral opportunities within the intramural research program. NCI is the federal government's principal agency for cancer research and is committed to training the next generation of scientific leaders. It is crucial that the biomedical workforce reflects the diversity of the population it serves. We strongly encourage underrepresented minority students to apply. 

Students are selected through a competitive process. The applications are reviewed by NCI investigators, many of whom are seeking to fill open postdoc positions. In addition to state-of-the-art laboratories and core facilities, NCI provides extensive professional and career development opportunities. 

  • Morning seminars provide information about science, training and career development opportunities at NCI and NIH 
  • Meetings with investigators provide insight into potential postdoc positions and help determine fit 
  • Poster sessions provide opportunities for additional meetings and networking 

Applications open in December. Please check www.cancer.gov/CSRP for more details or contact us at ncigsrp@mail.nih.gov
