Our Fellowships

Supporting careers in nutrition and cancer research

World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) International is committed to developing future leaders in nutrition and cancer through Fellowships. Our Fellowships – which we have been offering for the last five years – are awarded to outstanding applicants for attending relevant courses such as the International Course in Nutritional Epidemiology organised by the School of Public Health, Imperial College London.

As part of our Academy activities, Wageningen University in the Netherlands will be holding a masterclass on nutrition and cancer on 4–6 February 2019, in collaboration with WCRF International and Wereld Kanker Onderzoek Fonds.

The masterclass aims to connect people globally who are working on nutrition and cancer, and share the latest insights in the field using a multidisciplinary approach, ranging from biology to clinic and public health perspectives. The course topic will be From bench to bed to behaviour, and will be presented by an international panel of experts.

This masterclass is aimed at postgraduates and will be relevant to professionals from various fields (including nutritionists, epidemiologists, health promotors, physicians, policy makers, nutrition educators, biologists and food scientists) interested in the area. The masterclass may also be of interest to PhD students and postdoctoral researchers working in these fields.

WCRF International has joined up with Wereld Kanker Onderzoek Fonds to offer five Fellowships for outstanding applicants from any country, which will cover the cost of the masterclass fees. The deadline to apply for these five WCRF Fellowships is 14 November 2018.

You will be able to apply for the masterclass after this date, until 17 December 2018, but you will not be considered for one of the WCRF Fellowships.
