- APPLY NOW (login required and instructions below)
WHO SHOULD APPLY?
The Organizing Committee will award positions to 45 applicants who are either in their residency or who have begun their fellowships in any clinical oncology subspecialty. We encourage applications from those physicians in the early stages of laboratory training to those who are ready to transition to junior faculty. Fellows who are in the later stages of their laboratory training/seeking junior faculty positions are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants will be selected on the basis of their answers to the questions on the application and a letter of recommendation from their supervisor or department head. The Organizing Committee will seek a group of trainees who have made outstanding progress in their medical training, who have displayed an interest and competence in clinical or basic research, and who will come from a diverse group of training institutions and personal backgrounds.
Consideration will also be given for M.D., Ph.D. students with a demonstrated interest in cancer research. Applications from female and minority scientists are strongly encouraged. The 45 trainees selected will be required to pay a minimal registration fee of $250 for the workshop. This will cover their registration, complimentary hotel accommodations in Snowmass Village at the Westin Snowmass for the nights of the workshop (two trainees per room), inclusive, as well as offset the costs of social events, workshop materials and certain group meals. Trainees will be required to pay for their own travel to and from Snowmass Village. Please note: Because this workshop receives support from the National Cancer Institute, employees of the Federal Government may not be reimbursed for any expenses connected with the workshop. However, they are welcome to apply for attendance at the workshop and, if accepted, attend at their own expense.
The Organizing Committee will also accept to the workshop five (5) clinical scientists who have already embarked on academic careers. These senior scientists will pay a registration fee of $575 and will not receive any reimbursement for expenses incurred in connection with attending the workshop.
To complete the application, you must log in to your MyAACR account. If you are an AACR member and do not remember your user name and/or password, please follow the instructions on the upper left side of the login page. If you are not an AACR member and do not have an account, choose the "Please create a new account" option. This does not register you to become a member of the AACR, but simply allows you access to the MyAACR site for applying to the workshop and/or registering for other AACR conferences.
Once you have accessed your account, choose the "Applications/Awards" option at the top of the page. Select "Apply" next to the 2014 Molecular Biology in Clinical Oncology Workshop.
Be sure to answer all of the questions on the application form. Only complete online applications will be considered; paper submissions will not be accepted.
For physicians-in-training or oncology fellows, please submit a letter from your supervisor or department head. This letter should describe the quality of your clinical and experimental work. The letter may be submitted online with your application, or separately by email. If you or your supervisor/department head choose to send the letter separately by email, please send Word documents only to Amy Baran, Ph.D., at firstname.lastname@example.org
Submit the application form and letter from your supervisor or department head (if required), no later than Monday, March 24 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
