Our vision at the Max Perutz Laboratories is to reinvent the postdoc career.
We take the traditional postdoctoral fellowship and add extra independence, funding and support. We place it in our thriving research environment to foster scientific excellence.

Max Perutz had a simple recipe for running a successful lab. He recruited ambitious people, made sure they had what they need to work and fostered communication at all levels throughout the organization. The VIPS program is just one of the ways we try to emulate his success in managing the careers of younger scientists.

We appreciate the financial support of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research and the City of Vienna, which makes this unique program possible.
