Salary Range Full-time/Part-time Full Time If part-time, hours per week FTE 1.0 Proposed Start Date Estimated Duration of Appointment 24 Months Posting Open Date 07/29/2015 Posting Close Date Open Until Filled Yes Work Location Chapel Hill, NC Position Summary

This is a 24-36-month mentored postdoctoral training program that is offered at The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill (UNC Chapel Hill) with focus area of research on cancer nanotechnology. This program includes 22 faculty members representing eleven departments in three Schools, including physical, and material scientists, biomedical engineers, basic biomedical scientists, pharmaceutical scientists, and clinician-scientists, all of whom have demonstrated strong interests and capabilities to work at the interface between nanoscience and cancer. These individuals will serve as mentors to trainees, utilizing two broad approaches. The first approach involves active co-mentorship of the trainee’s research project over a period of two years. In each case there will be a physical scientist and a biomedical scientist acting in tandem to guide trainee research. It is expected that this approach will provide unique multi-faceted training experience leading to significant contributions to cancer nanotechnology. The second approach involves trainee participation in workshops and courses that will broaden their knowledge and conceptual understanding of all areas of cancer nanotechnology. The topics of these workshops will reflect many of the major themes of the Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer. In addition to activities focused on postdoctoral researchers, the C-CNTP will also embark on a broadly based outreach program to disseminate concepts concerning cancer nanotechnology both within the university community and to the public at large.
