VIP2 is a three-year postdoctoral fellowship program that is open to candidates with backgrounds in biology, chemistry, physics, medicine, engineering, computer science, and bioinformatics. VIPwill have three international calls and recruit 45 fellows (15 in each call). Fellows will select the main research group and academic mentor according to their specific project and will be supported by a second mentor that can come from the VBC biotech sector or from our alumni network.
