HEIDELBERG, GERMANY — Germany’s independent research institute BioMed X has announced the launch of its “Ukrainian Refugee Funding Program” which supports doctoral and master’s level researchers in the life sciences who cannot continue their work in institutions in Ukraine. Together with some of its partners, BioMed X aims to give these scientists the opportunity to continue their work in a research group at the BioMed X Institute in Heidelberg, Germany, for a period of up to four years.
Thomas Rückle, Senior Vice President and Head of Research at the BioMed X Institute: “The situation in Ukraine is a tragedy, which requires a joint effort to offer support and help. Our BioMed X institute is a place where early career scientists have the opportunity to grow. Together with some of our partners, we started this funding program because we sincerely hope to provide a scientific home for some of the researchers who cannot pursue their careers in Ukraine.
Ideal candidates have a master’s degree, as well as research experience, in molecular/cellular biology, bio-organic chemistry, pharmacology or physics. Knowledge of the German language is not required. Both Ukrainian and non-Ukrainian citizens are welcome to apply, provided they meet the eligibility criteria.
