With omics@VIB, we offer 10 international fellowships to integrative biology postdocs who have advanced skills in omics technologies. The omics@VIB postdoc program offers you a highly stimulating and multicultural environment. Embedded in excellent research groups, you will be working on breakthrough science, with access to cutting-edge technologies, three year secured funding and personal career assistance. We expect you to propose your own integrative biology project, focusing on the use or the introduction of ‘omics’ (bioinformatics, metagenomics, genomics, proteomics…) in the research topic of your choice. This program is cofinanced by the European Commission Marie Curie FP7 People Cofund.
