Postdoctoral Research Training: Cancer Biology

Aerial View, WFBMC

The department of Cancer Biology at Wake Forest School of Medicine (WFSM) is seeking postdoctoral fellows interested in pursuing advanced training in Cancer Biology. The program launched an innovative postdoctoral program that allows “transition to independence” for postdoctoral fellows.

Transition to Independence  

This program, which is supported by our training grant, will provide 2 years of postdoctoral support under a chosen advisor and 1 year of independent research in the position of an instructor. The position as an instructor in the department will provide the fellow the opportunity to write grant application as the primary investigator.


Available research projects focus on Cellular Damage and Metabolism, Cell Growth and Survival, gene-environment interactions, aberrant signaling pathways in tumor cells, molecular cancer epidemiology, and Cancer Prevention and Control. Please visit the Cancer Biology faculty Web pages for more details on research projects.

About the Cancer Center 

The Cancer Center at Wake Forest University is a National Institutes of Health (NIH)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. Only 1 percent of U.S. cancer centers are designated by the National Cancer Institute as comprehensive—indicating excellence in research, patient care and education. U.S.News and World Report ranks our Comprehensive Cancer Center among the nation’s top hospitals in cancer care.

Within the Cancer Center, the Centers of Excellence in Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer and Brain Tumor assemble researchers and clinicians from different disciplines for a comprehensive look at these malignancies. In addition, our researchers investigate other cancer types.
