Blueprint of the Program
Supporting individual paths
VIPS offers a number of career paths. You can join the program directly after your PhD or build on the experiences of a previous postdoc.
Some of our postdocs have developed a new project from scratch with their supervisor at MFPL (Stephanie Bannister, Australia), others brought a new experimental system with them and embarked on a new question (Tobias Kaiser, Germany). Yet others have already obtained their own grant before they came (Angela Hancock, USA).
We will help you to plan your career path. You can chosse the training you need from a wide variety of seminars and support. We will also help you to network by fostering collaborations with a variety of other institutions.
All of this is meant to provide you a framework in which you can fully focus on your scientific project.
