The IGC Postdoctoral Training Programme is designed to broaden and deepen the research skills and training of the postdocs and to boost their career perspectives and encourage them to become successful independent research scientists.
This training includes research in an IGC PI lab, 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 and meetings).
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.
Postdoctoral Program Biology by Numbers
Multidisciplinary programme for PhD holders from Exact Sciences & Engineering
Advanced courses covering both basic concepts and cutting-edge research in modern biology. Module topics range from structural and molecular biology to evolution and ecology and are taught by IGC faculty and invited lecturers from top universities and research institutes all over the world. The Programme includes modules in partnership with the Champalimaud Foundation and the University of Cologne/ Max Planck Institute, Cologne. At the end of the classes, postdoctoral researchers will develop a research proposal with the support of their chosen IGC principal investigators in order to apply.
