Postdoctoral fellows joining IRB Barcelona gain access to the Institute’s advanced research training and career development opportunities, all within in a competitive international environment.

IRB Barcelona is conscious that this is a critical stage of their careers, and aims to provide postdocs with the scientific, technical and administrative support that they need to excel. Postdocs generally join IRB Barcelona on an external grant obtained through national and international agencies.


A focus on interdisciplinarity

Courses and workshops on themes of particular interest to postdocs are offered regularly. These include lab management, communication, science and grant writing, and more. Postdocs can also take advantage of the numerous conferences, seminars and other events in the Barcelona BioMed series.

Like the PhD student body, postdocs at IRB Barcelona take an active interest in promoting cohesion interaction among their community. The IRB Barcelona Postdoctoral Council organizes events and activities, both scientific and social, and liaises with IRB Barcelona administration.

You can contact the IRB Barcelona Postdoctoral Council if you wish to find out more about the life of postdocs at the Institute.

One example is the recent launch of an annual Postdoc Day, which aims to bring together scientists from across the research programmes to showcase their latest scientific results and explore possibilities for collaboration.
