Postdoctoral Training at Moffitt

The Postdoctoral Training Program at the Moffitt Cancer Center was established to advance the careers of promising scholars who are interested in sharing our mission, which is "to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer." Moffitt Cancer Center is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida and one of only seven in the Southeast. As a Comprehensive Cancer Center, our research enterprise offers training in numerous areas key in the fight against cancer. By combining cutting-edge research facilities with a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment, we hope to provide fellows with the skills and support they need to gain independence and pursue a career path of their choosing, whether in academics, industry, government, or others.

Our postdoctoral researchers receive intensive training under the guidance of Moffitt’s outstanding faculty mentors. The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) facilitates the planning, organization, guidance and evaluation of academic and career development activities for all of Moffitt’s research postdoctoral fellows. Working closely with the Moffitt Postdoctoral Association, the OPA offers diverse educational activities, including monthly series on "Responsible Conduct of Research," "Career Development" and "Life Skills," research retreats, symposia and conferences.

We are interested in recruiting scholars who have a profound interest in the prevention, treatment and cure of cancer, one experiment at a time, as well as those who would like to help patients in their struggle to beat the disease.

In addition to the formal, advertised positions at Moffitt, many of our faculty are always looking to add promising young talent to their research teams. We encourage you to directly contact our faculty to ask about the possibility of joining their labs. In order to help facilitate your search for postdoc opportunities, we also invite you to share your CV with us. Your CV will be made available to all Moffitt faculty, who can review it and contact you if they think you would be a good fit for their research team.

It is the mission of the OPA to provide an environment where fellows from all over the world feel comfortable, understood, and involved, making their postdoctoral experience more personally and professionally gratifying. Please contact us at for more information.
