Ireland—Northern Ireland—NCI Cancer Consortium
The NCI has formed a multilateral partnership with Ireland and Northern Ireland to promote cooperation in all aspects of cancer research, treatment, and prevention. As part of this Ireland—Northern Ireland—NCI Cancer Consortium, the CPFP is open to applicants from Ireland and Northern Ireland. It is intended that individuals applying through the Consortium will pursue careers in cancer prevention in Ireland or Northern Ireland upon completion of the fellowship.
The program provides M.P.H. training in Ireland or Northern Ireland (year 1), the Summer Curriculum in Cancer Prevention, and mentored research at the NCI (years 2–4). If the applicant already possesses an M.P.H. degree and a primary degree in a health-related discipline or a Ph.D. in epidemiology or biostatistics, the fellowship will typically begin directly at the NCI (years 1–3).
To be eligible to apply through the Consortium, the applicant must:
The Consortium will provide funds to attend an interview at NCI, if invited; M.P.H. training in Ireland/Northern Ireland; stipend; move to the U.S. and return; health insurance; and one scientific meeting per year while at the NCI.
Prior to applying to the CPFP through the Consortium, applicants must contact the Health Research Board or HSC Research & Development Office (refer to Consortium Contact Information) to ensure that eligibility criteria are satisfied. Applicants should allow sufficient time to obtain approval through the Consortium prior to the August 25th, application deadline.
