Discovering the causes of cancer and the means of prevention

Postdoctoral Fellowships

DCEG is the world’s most comprehensive cancer epidemiology research group. Our renowned international research program includes epidemiologists, geneticists, biostatisticians, clinicians, and laboratory scientists who conduct multidisciplinary research to study risk factors, from workplace exposures to lifestyle choices.

DCEG is uniquely able to conduct research projects that:

  • Are high risk
  • Provide a rapid response to emerging public health or scientific issues
  • Require an interdisciplinary approach
  • Need long-term commitments of funding and scientific staff
  • Might go unattended by groups without a national and international reach
