The IGC Postdoctoral Training Program is designed to broaden and deepen the research skills and training of postdocs and to boost their career perspectives and encourage them to become successful independent researchers .
This training includes research in one or more IGC labs, where the degree of independence depends on the level of experience of the researcher. Postdocs have a number of courses available for their development, besides being encouraged to participate in several activities that contribute to their career development (Data clubs, Journal Clubs, Lab Meetings, organization of Seminars, meetings and Career Talks).
PONTE Postdoctoral Program in Theoretical Quantitative Biology
Multidisciplinary program for PhD holders from Exact Sciences
A program to bridge exact sciences with biology: The PONTE program awards postdoctoral fellowships for up to three years to highly independent graduates in physics, mathematic, engineering or a related discipline. PONTE Fellows will perform research in theoretical quantitative biology in collaboration with local experimental groups.
Career Guidance for Postdocs aims to ensure that postdocs have the possibility to receive mentorship from independent academic and non-academic sources.
The mission of the committee is to assist the professional development of all IGC postdocs, foster a solid institutional environment capable of sustaining this progress and provide a 'peer support' network for all postdocs.
The Postdoc Delegates act as a conduit for information between the postdoc body, Administration and IGC Board. This group include postdocs from different years and it overlaps with the Postdoc Committee.
