SymbNET starts 2022 with great new opportunities for collaboration between partners.
The “SymbNET Research Exchange Program” funds short-term visits of PhD students and Postdocs to another SymbNET institution.
These visits consist of collaborative research projects in host-microbe symbioses focusing on genomics and metabolomics and involving at least one group from FCG-IGC or ITQB NOVA and one group from EMBL, UNIL, or CAU.
PhD students or Postdocs from FCG-IGC or ITQB NOVA can apply to visit collaborators at CAU, UNIL or EMBL, and doctoral students or Postdocs from CAU, UNIL or EMBL can apply to visit collaborators at FCG-IGC or ITQB NOVA.
The collaboration may be based on wet-lab research or bioinformatics and should last between 1 to 4 weeks.
SymbNET will cover the costs of travelling and lodging. The cost of research reagents will be covered up to €2.000 per project.
The call for proposal submissions is continuous. SymbNET will fund 12 projects over the three years of the project (2021-2023).
