The Italian Association for Cancer Research and the Italian Foundation for Cancer Research invite applications for their fellowships in Italy. These enable young graduates or postdoctoral fellows to broaden or acquire experience in oncologic research in a cancer-focused laboratory in Italy. Proposed research should be original, innovative, feasible within the timeframe, and have the potential to advance the field.

Applicants must have a master’s degree or equivalent in medicine, biological sciences, pharmacy, chemistry and pharmaceutical technology, medical statistics, medical biotechnologies or another scientific discipline, obtained after 31 December 2013. They may be of any nationality and are not expected to reside in Italy at the time of the submission deadline. Fellows may not be in receipt of any other continuous employment income during the fellowship period. Fellowships must be undertaken at a research organisation, such as a university, hospital or other research centre in Italy. The IFCR stream also offers mobility fellowships, which provide additional funding to assist fellows who move to a hosting institution located in a different region to their region of origin.

Fellowships are worth €25,000 per year or €30,000 per year in the case of mobility fellowships, for one to three years.
