Predoc Program RNA & Disease – Switzerland

The Swiss National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) on RNA & Disease is seeking candidates to join the Predoc program, which offers to prospective PhD students the possibility to explore different research directions and environments by performing three rotations of four months each in participating labs.

Predoc participants broaden their theoretical and methodological knowledge in different research fields related to RNA and disease and have the opportunity to build a professional network at an early career stage. Predoc students will receive the salary of a first-year life science PhD student.

Due to the Sars-CoV2 outbreak the application deadline for the 2020 call for the Predoc program has been postponed to December 1, 2020. Interviews with shortlisted applicants are planned to take place at the beginning of February 2021.

The application system will open during the first half of October.
