ANNOUNCEMENT: Call for CPRIT BIG-TCR Predoctoral Fellowship Applications in Cancer Research
The 2023 application cycle of CPRIT-funded Predoctoral Fellowship is currently open. Applications will be accepted through 11: 59pm CST, Monday, October 9, 2023. The selected candidates will be notified for interview by October 13, 2023.
Predoctoral Training Program:
The UTHealth Houston BIG-TCR Training Program will support up to five BIG-TCR predoctoral fellows per year. Each trainee will be supervised by two mentors, with one mentor specialized in the biomedical informatics and genomics (BIG) area, while the other mentor in translational or basic cancer research (TCR). The fellowship will cover graduate student tuition, stipends, fringe benefits, and provide a modest travel allowance. BIG-TCR predoctoral fellows will be appointed for one year with the possibility of renewal for up to two years, dependent upon their successful academic and research progress, participation in activities related to the BIG-TCR Training Program (e.g., enhancement activities, annual CPRIT retreat, journal club meetings), and competition among new applicants.
