The University of New Mexico and the partnering New Mexico National Laboratories have outstanding capabilities and breadth in materials synthesis and self-assembly, nanolithography, interrogative platforms, and functional micro/macrosystems. The University of New Mexico also has one of the 64 NCI-designated Cancer Centers in the nation and nanoscale engineering and physical sciences approaches provide core technologies for research to prevent, detect and treat cancer.
The New Mexico Cancer Nanoscience and Microsystems Training Center (CNTC) was established to recognize and to expand partnerships between the cancer and nanoscience communities in New Mexico in order to reduce suffering and death due to cancer. Its mission is to equip graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with the biomedical knowledge and nanoscale physical sciences and engineering tools needed to become next-generation leaders in cancer research. Interdisciplinary skills are developed primarily though immersion in interdisciplinary research teams working towards improved cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. CNTC mentors and fellows are drawn from a wide range of UNM, National Lab and local biotech programs as described here. Please consider joining the CNTC as a graduate student, a postdoctoral fellow or as a mentor.
Applications for CNTC graduate and postdoctoral fellowships are due April 01 for June 01 activation and June 30 for activation on the first day of the Fall semester. Graduate stipends are either equal to or slightly above the NIH pay scale, depending on policies of the home department or program. Postdoctoral fellowships are matching awards (50% grant support matched with 50% support from other sources) using the NIH pay scale (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/not-od-10-047.html). Fellows receive additional benefits including tuition, health insurance and access to travel funds. The benefits and responsibilities of becoming a CNTC pre- and post-doctoral fellow and/or mentor can be found on the How To Apply page.
