Graduate Students & Postdoctoral Fellows
Much of the research carried out at Western involves graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. University laboratories and research facilities are in effect classrooms which enable professors to demonstrate, hands-on, the practical applications of their work. In addition, participation in research fosters student intellectual development by immersing them in an environment of discovery. At Western, we pride ourselves in providing the best student experience among Canada's leading research-insensitive universities. What better way is there to learn?

- Translational Breast Cancer Research Traineeship program: Studentships & Postdoctoral Fellowships - The purpose of the Program is to encourage and support translational breast cancer research by providing funding for Studentships and Postdoctoral Fellowships. This program is made possible by a major donation from the Breast Cancer Society of Canada to the Translational Breast Cancer Research Unit at the London Regional Cancer Program (LRCP), as well as donations from other groups interested in supporting translational breast cancer research.
- Trainees working under the supervision of any Western faculty member who is actively engaged in breast cancer research are invited to apply. Proposals should have a strong focus on translational breast cancer research.
