The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is currently recruiting senior-level graduate students for our Graduate Student Recruiting Program (GSRP).  The GSRP is a competitive program that provides students the opportunity to explore postdoctoral fellowships at the NCI.  During the program in May, accepted applicants will learn about the various resources that NIH and NCI have to offer, gain interviewing skills, and network with NCI investigators, staff, and current postdocs.  NCI investigators looking to fill open positions view GSRP as a source of qualified candidates.  Graduate students who apply and are invited to visit NIH have a distinct advantage.

While GSRP does not guarantee a postdoc position, more than 50-70% of the participants receive official interviews as a direct result of the program. Over the last five years, 42% of GSRP participants who pursued a postdoc are/have completed their postdoc at the NCI. We strongly encourage under-represented minorities to submit applications. NCI is committed to training the next generation of scientific leaders, and it is crucial that this reflects the diversity of the population it serves.  The application deadline is February 5, 2021, with letters of reference due by February 12, 2021.

The application link and more information can be found by visiting the GSRP website at www.cancer.gov/GSRP
