 Applications are invited from postdoctoral scientists who are Australian Nationals to coordinate and conduct both epidemiological and laboratory research into the causes and prevention of cancer.

The Fellowship is tenable at the IARC in Lyon, France working in a research Group. The fellowship is for a period of one year, with the possibility of an extension for a second year subject to satisfactory appraisal. Candidates are required to have spent less than five years abroad (including doctoral studies) and have finished their doctoral degree within five years of the closing date for application or be in the final phase of completing their doctoral degree (M.D. or Ph.D.). The working languages at IARC are English and French. Candidates already working as a postdoctoral fellow at the Agency at the time of application or who have had any contractual relationship with IARC during the six months preceding the application deadline or who have already spent more than one year at IARC cannot be considered. Candidates must contact the host Group of their choice at IARC before application in order to interact closely to establish a proposed programme of mutual interest.

The fellowship must be taken up by 30 November 2011. The annual stipend is currently 31 860 Euros. The cost of travel for the Fellow, and in certain circumstances for dependants, will be met, a dependant’s allowance paid, and health insurance covered.
