Post Doctoral Fellows

We see the postdoc time as an opportunity to train for an independent position, in an environment where everything is conducive to developing as a scientist.

VBC is now Austria’s largest life sciences research center and a stellar example of an interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral campus. It is also a campus where top research, education and a diverse private sector are effectively synergizing. We have a vibrant campus near the center of Vienna with good public transport links and English is the main language at all institutes.

Joining the VBC as a Postdoctoral Fellow

  • Fellows can apply directly to the research groups; please send the group leader an email with a cover letter, CV and the names of two references or
  • Via the exclusive Vienna International Postdoctoral Program (VIP2). For details of the program visit the main page.

The postdoctoral fellows are given research freedom and assess to state-of-the art infrastructure, plus a comprehensive training program, focused around the individual needs of each fellow's career development plan.
