Apply to be a Fellow in REB

Candidates must hold a doctorate in medicine, epidemiology or related field. Familiarity with statistical software is preferred but not required. For radiation dosimetry applicants, familiarity with Monte Carlo radiation transport simulation codes, computational human phantoms, and dose measurement techniques using physical phantoms is preferred. 

Fellowship applications are accepted on a continuous basis. Contact investigators in REB doing research in your area of interest with a copy of your CV; DCEG scientists are always on the lookout for new trainees. In addition, submit your CV to the application database so it can be reviewed by investigators across the NCI searching for trainees. You can also apply for training positions with specific investigators listed below.
