IARC Mid-Career Visiting Scientist Award 2022

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is the specialized cancer Agency of the World Health Organization (WHO). Based in Lyon, France, IARC is inter-disciplinary, bringing together skills in epidemiology, laboratory sciences and biostatistics to identify the causes of cancer so that preventive measures may be adopted, and the burden of the disease and associated suffering reduced. It provides a unique career development environment for scientists at all levels, with the opportunity to gain experience in research from a truly global perspective.

The Agency is now offering the exciting new opportunity of an IARC Mid-Career Visiting Scientist Award. This Award is for a qualified and experienced mid-career investigator from a LMIC who wishes to come to IARC and drive a collaborative project in a research area related to the Agency’s programmes and current medium-term strategy (MTS) for a period of between 6 and 12 months
