Irving Cancer Early Scholars

The Irving Cancer Early (ICE) Scholars of Computational Cancer Research is a new program for early career scientists looking to fast-track to faculty rank without the need to undertake a traditional postdoctoral fellowship. ICE Scholars will join our vibrant community of highly-interactive investigators with interests in key areas of computational cancer research, including systems biology and mathematical genomics, and serve as Principal Investigators to pursue creative computational approaches to cancer research in the basic, translational, clinical and/or population sciences.

ICE Scholars will establish their independent program within a supporting laboratory and will be provided with all the resources necessary for success, including a dedicated mentorship committee of Columbia faculty, opportunities for pilot funding, collaboration with a wide range of Columbia scientists, and guidance in the preparation of grant applications as Principal Investigator. The recruitment package will include funds for salary and fringe benefits, research support and relocation costs. As HICCC members, ICE Scholars will have access to superb HICCC Shared Resources and will join a vibrant community of clinicians and scientists across Columbia University and its affiliated institutions, including those working in cancer as well as in other areas.
