Post-doctoral positions are meant for training researchers at the beginning of their professional life with the expectation that they will be able to take the next step in their career. IMBB, in line with international and EU-Life practices, has adopted specific actions to support postdocs during their time in IMBB and towards their future career development whether that will be in academia or beyond. The IMBB mentoring and career track scheme (MCTS) is designed to provide all post docs and junior PIs with:
(1) effective mentoring by a senior current or past (alumni) IMBB member;
(2) training opportunities to develop, in addition to research skills, broad competences that will help them in their future career;
(3) attending lectures from invited speakers on alternative career-paths within biological sciences;
(4) a track scheme to follow whether set-goals are achieved and how career-development is progressing
The whole process will be overseen by the MCTS Committee which will act as a contact point between post-docs and mentors. The MCTS committee consists of four IMBB group leaders (Electra Gizeli, Domna Karagogeos, Anastasios Pavlopoulos and Inga Siden-Kiamos) and one post doc representative (Eva Zacharioudaki).
For further information, please contact either any of the MCTS Committee members or the secretary (Rodanthi Lasitiotaki).
