Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

Recognizing that training young scientists is critical to advancing the future of biomedical research, both City of Hope and Israel Cancer Research Fund place strong emphasis on postdoctoral fellowships.

Through the Jacki and Bruce Barron Cancer Research Scholars’ Program, ICRF will select two postdoctoral fellows in Israel through a competitive application process based on a written research plan. These scientists will be matched with outstanding faculty at City of Hope.

The program will be open to candidates with a Ph.D., D.V.M., M.D. or equivalent degree. Fellows will spend one year at City of Hope. Each fellow will receive a stipend of $71,203 to cover the costs of their travel, housing, salary, benefits, research supplies and attendance at national or international oncology conferences.

Young Israeli scientists will initiate interactions with City of Hope scientists by reviewing our areas of research and available scientific resources and submit an application in accordance with the posted guidelines .
