2025 Clinical Fellowship Applications

Six Clinical Fellows will be supported in 2025 as part of the Breast Cancer Trials Clinical Fellowship Program.

2025 Clinical Fellowships

Breast Cancer Trials (BCT) will support up to six (6) part time Clinical Fellowships, annually, to promote the work of the group.

The fellowships can be in any of the disciplines listed below, with a maximum of two (2) fellows per discipline in any given year.

The aim is to encourage applications from a variety of disciplines. The intent is to allow early career researchers to spend dedicated time on research projects relevant to existing or future BCT clinical trials that support aspects of the BCT strategic plan. This may relate to analysis and extension of existing trials, or background/pilot work relating to future trials.

Fellowships are awarded for 1 year, but a follow-up application may be considered for a second year.

Salary support for up to $70,000 for 2 days per week, for 12 months per Fellowship will be made available from early 2025. It is expected that this time will be supplemented by clinical time or other research time funded by the host institution.

Fellowships are available in the following disciplines:

  • Medical oncology
  • Pathology
  • Psychology and other supportive care specialities
  • Radiation oncology
  • Radiology
  • Surgery

Applications for Fellowships must be made by the Supervisor of the Fellowship, who must be a BCT member. The applicant must agree that the work funded by the BCT Fellowship is directly relevant to BCT work. Fellows are expected to attend the BCT ASM, and registration for the ASM will be part of the award.

The application must include a description of the proposed project in sufficient details to allow the selection committee to assess its scientific merit, feasibility and relevance to BCT activities, as well as an outline of the applicants past record of breast cancer research and future ambitions.

Applications for funding for 2025 will close on 6 September 2024, and successful applicants will be notified by 27 September 2024.
