Projects & Preceptors

When you apply to be a Student Cancer Research Fellow, you will select three preceptors/projects you would like to work on during your fellowship and note them on your application. We make every effort to assign you to your first choice but we may need to make alternative assignments based on preceptor availability.

Projects are located in the Denver-metro area, unless otherwise noted on the preceptor's page. Please note: we have researchers in Boulder, Fort Collins, and Colorado Springs, in addition to the Anschutz Campus. Click on the preceptor's name to see a project description, position prerequisites and number of openings. Please note: Some preceptors are willing to consider you even if you don't meet the required number of years in college.
