BioMed X (Heidelberg, Germany) has announced the start of its “Ukraine Refugee Funding Programme” that supports doctoral students and masters-level researchers in the life sciences who cannot continue their work at institutions in Ukraine. In collaboration with some of its partners, BioMed X aims to give these scientists the opportunity to continue their work in a research group at the BioMed X Institute in Heidelberg for a period of up to four years. Candidates should have a master’s degree, as well as research experience, in either molecular/cell biology, bio-organic chemistry, pharmacology, or physics. Knowledge of the German language is not required.

Thomas Rückle, Senior VP and Head of Research at the BioMed X Institute, commented: “The situation in Ukraine is a tragedy that requires a joint effort to offer support and help. Our BioMed X Institute is a place where early-career scientists are given the opportunity to develop themselves. Together with some of our partners we launched this funding programme because we sincerely hope to provide a scientific home for some of the researchers who cannot continue their career in Ukraine.”
