The Vienna BioCenter is one of Europe’s leading life science research centres. Here four research institutes share a common vision in supporting fundamental science and in training scientists at the highest level. The Vienna International Postdoctoral Program, VIP2 is a new three-year fellowship program, which will provide prime research conditions as well as a comprehensive scientific education scheme for postdoctoral scientists. English is the working language (no German is required or needed), Vienna is a fun, young city embedded in beautiful old buildings, an international metropolis in the heart of Europe, which is rated as the number one city in the world for quality of life.
VIP2 offers an outstanding research environment, and will boost the careers of fellows by supporting them with a structured training and career development program under the principle “Inform, Inspire, Innovate”:
VIP2 will foster exposure to different sectors and facilitate career transitions. The program offers a two-mentor scheme (the second mentor can be from a different sector) and opportunities for a two-month secondment. Fellows will be advised and supported by an inter-sectoral advisory board
The research groups participating in VIP2 cover the full scope of modern life sciences. The research topics range from structural to organismal biology, from gene expression to neurobiology, and from microbiology to molecular medicine. A similar diversity is seen in the research models that are being explored. The Vienna BioCenter has an extremely collaborative and collegial atmosphere, which is facilitated by opportunities for communication and interaction, like the campus seminar series and regular social events.
Call for applicants:
The first VIP2 call for 15 fellows opens on 15 April (deadline 15 June), applicants with a PhD in biology, chemistry, physics, medicine, engineering, computer science, and bioinformatics are eligible to apply.

This fellowship program will be supported by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 847548.
