The College for Life Sciences is a unique program of the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, Institute for Advanced Study, to promote early-career postdoctoral life scientists.
The fellowship will offer you time away from your regular lab work, teaching duties, and competitions for funds and positions and take you into a community of peers from other life science areas, leading scientists from various research disciplines, and outstanding intellectuals. This inspiring and interdisciplinary environment can broaden your horizon, help you reconsider and define your research goals, encourage you to follow up daring and unusual ideas, and help you to develop new scientific interactions.
As we do not provide lab space, it is not "just another fellowship", but the opportunity to step back from your lab routines and reflect on your institutional and intellectual “settings”.
If you are an excellent life scientist at a starting or turning point in your career and are interested in the program, explore how to apply here.
