Тип: PostDoc vacancy;


 The University of Vienna is launching a new initiative, the INDICAR Postdoctoral FellowshipProgramme, to promote a new vision of postdoctoral training in the field of cancer research.

A central goal of INDICAR is to further strengthen the role of post-doctoral researchers as critically thinking, independent, autonomous and risk taking researchers and innovators, who will contribute to the benefit of academia and society at large. The researchers will be free to choose the research department of their choice or to undertake research within the framework of a multidisciplinary research platform. This freedom means that there is the potential for the researcher to undertake novel and new research and to build on their scientific independence. Furthermore, the INDICAR Fellowship Programme, which is co-funded by the EU Frameworkprogramme 7 (FP7) Marie Curie Actions, offers mentoring, coaching and career development activities, in addition to optimal employment conditions, a competitive salary and family support.

Who is eligible?

We welcome applications from researchers from a wide range of backgrounds including, biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, chemistry, nursing science, molecular genetics/ genomics, nutritional sciences, pharmaceutical sciences and physics. Please note that all potential applicants need to comply with the ‘mobility rule’ of the EU FP7 Marie Curie Actions (

Employment Conditions and Payments

The fellow will be allocated a gross salary starting approximately at 51.000 EUR per year. The travel and mobility allowance which will be allocated to the fellow will represent a flat rate of about 700 Euros per month and will be increased in case of family to about 1.000 Euros per month. In addition, each fellow will be allocated 1.500 Euro per month, thus 18.000 EUR per year, for costs related to their research.
