The Cologne Else-Kröner Clinician Scientist Programm has been extended for 3 additional years. It gives MD Fellows the opportunity to work for up to 2 years in a research laboratory without clinical duties, and is flanked by a comprehensive educational and mentoring program. The first funding period was very successful and the next call is now open for new outstanding candidates until October 31st 2020.
If you are a medical doctor with an excellent research track and with a strong interest in translational research in oncology, this program will allow you to focus on your research track and further develop your scientific career. You need the support of your clinical department and of a research group.
Several PIs at the MPI-Age take part in the program and people who are interested can contact them directly. All details including whom to contact can be found on this website: www.ekf-cologne.de.
