About the Organization:

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is the specialized cancer agency of the World Health Organization. The objective of the IARC is to promote international collaboration in cancer research. A significant feature of the IARC is its expertise in coordinating research across countries and organizations; its independent role as an international organization facilitates this activity.

About the Award:

The Agency is offering the exciting opportunity of an IARC Senior Visiting Scientist Award. This Award is for a qualified and experienced senior investigator with recent publications in international peer-reviewed scientific journals, who wishes to spend 6-12 months at IARC, working on a collaborative project in a research area related to the Agency’s programmes.

The major areas of activity are focused on understanding cancer etiology (including infections, nutrition, lifestyle, environment, radiation, and genetics), developing strategies for cancer prevention (primary prevention, screening, and implementation research), and elucidating the underlying mechanisms of carcinogenesis through studies of molecular and cell biology, molecular genetics, epigenetics, and molecular pathology.

The Agency also has strong programmes dedicated to describing the global cancer burden, and to the evaluation of carcinogenicity, through its Monographs Programme. There is an emphasis on interdisciplinary work in the Agency’s research activities, as well as a focus on biostatistics, bioinformatics, and related methodological developments.

Eligibility:

Applicants must belong to the staff of a university or a research institution and should provide written assurance of a post to return to at the end of the period of the award.

Value:

The annual stipend will be 48,000 Euros, pro-rata, according to the length of stay. The cost of travel for the Awardee, and in certain circumstances for dependants, will be met, and health insurance covered.
