Become part of the Young Investigator Research Programme and our new colleague at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University, Denmark

Research at MBG is multidisciplinary with a focus on both basic and applied research in molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and ranging from quantitative genetics to structural biology (see description here). We aim to attract outstanding researchers who wish to apply for investigator grants, to establish an independent research group.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to give a seminar/talk at the MBG Young Investigator Symposium at Aarhus University on August 20, 2019. At the symposium, candidates will also be able to discuss funding possibilities, the development of an independent research group and other future career plans in depth with the MBG faculty.

After the symposium, outstanding candidates will be selected and mentored in writing investigator grant applications, with the aim of establishing an independent research group at MBG, Aarhus University.

Candidates obtaining an investigator grant will have the opportunity to establish their own research group in a stimulating and international research environment. MBG offers a personal career mentor and the possibility to participate in the Aarhus University Junior Researcher Development programme.
