Fostering Scientific Excellence
Boehringer Ingelheim’s new postdoctoral program provides talented and ambitious scientists with the opportunity to pursue cutting-edge research with industry-leading colleagues. Participants will explore challenging areas of research and create the starting point for many new therapeutic concepts and technologies, paving the way for the discovery and development of breakthrough medicines that will make a difference to patients’ lives in the future.
Uniquely, at the end of their tenure, post-doc fellows moving to an academic institution will have the opportunity to apply for a transition grant so they can pursue their research in their own laboratory.
The program aims to attract highly motivated young fellows with a strong scientific background to fill open postdoctoral positions across Boehringer Ingelheim research sites and specialties. Candidates are also invited to proactively submit research proposals aligned with the stated scientific focus of each therapeutic area.
