The Department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University is inviting applications from under-represented minority (URM) candidates interested in pursuing postdoctoral research in the fields of radiation oncology, radiation and cancer biology, and/or medical physics. The fellowship will support one postdoctoral fellow for one year to pursue postdoctoral research in a lab of their choice within the department of Radiation Oncology (see list at https://radonc.stanford.edu/research/department-labs.html). The purpose of this program is to support the careers of promising scholars from diverse backgrounds who can meaningfully contribute to enriching the academic field of radiation oncology (broadly defined). The successful applicant will receive mentorship and research training to facilitate their transition towards an independent, tenure-track position. Our labs cover a wide range of research topics, including artificial intelligence, metabolomics, DNA repair, cancer immunotherapy, cancer biology, hypoxia, medical imaging, radiomics, medical physics, FLASH radiotherapy, liquid biopsy, and clinical research.
Eligibility: For the purpose of this application, URM is defined as any US resident (including DACAmented, TPS holders, and undocumented folks) whose racial or ethnic makeup is from one of the following:
· African American / Black
· Hispanic / Latinx

· Other, please explain
Additionally, applicants should be able to provide proof of holding PhD or attainment of it in the next 3 months in a relevant field of study, including biology, biochemistry, biophysics, biomedical engineering, medical physics, data science, or any related field. To apply, please submit a CV, cover letter, and contact information for 2-3 references. The cover letter should include the names of the lab(s) of interest to the applicant. A committee will review applications and select top candidates based on academic achievement and research background.
Deadline for applications is 5PM PT on Monday, February 27, 2023.
