Radiation Epidemiology Fellowship Opportunities
Investigators in the Radiation Epidemiology Branch (REB) work with fellows to conduct research on populations exposed to a variety of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation sources. Fellows work with internationally known scientists, studying:
- Second primary cancers and other cancer survivorship studies
- Cancer risks associated with medical sources of ionizing radiation
- Cohort and case-control studies of selected cancers in the U.S. Radiologic Technologists cohort
- Studies in Japanese atomic bomb survivors
- Thyroid cancer risk factors and genetics
- Cohort study of retinoblastoma survivors
- Radiation Dosimetry to Support Epidemiologic Studies

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 conducting research in your area of interest and send 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 who may be searching for trainees. You can also apply for training positions with specific investigators listed below.

The NIH gives fellows the ability to curate their own experience by encouraging our involvement in grassroots organizations such as the FelCom or DFel. As the liaison to the training directors for the NIH Fellows Committee, I got to witness first-hand how much the NIH cares about creating a rich and successful experience for their fellows.
