 INDEPENDENT CAREER
 
Starting your independent career at DepMed
(MHV, Ambizione, SNSF Professors, MSCA, ERC)


The Department of Medicine seeks to host young, qualified investigators in their early move into their independent career through career development awards.
If interested, we recommend establishing contact with a hosting laboratory and/or the Department of Medicine as stated below, as soon as possible.
SNSF Professorships are subjected to internal selection, as only a limited number of positions can be integrated per year and supported by the Department.
For other funding schemes, interviews with the host laboratory and/or the Department are an integral part of the application procedure.
