Postdoctoral Training

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).
