SymbNET Research Exchange Program

PhD students, Postdocs Visits and Secondments

The “SymbNET Research Exchange Program” funds short-term visits of PhD students and Postdocs to another SymbNET partner institution.

These visits consist of collaborative research projects in host-microbe symbioses focusing on genomics and metabolomics. The collaboration may be based on wet-lab research or bioinformatics and should last between 1 to 4 weeks.

SymbNET will cover travelling and lodging expenses and the cost of research reagents up to €2.000.

The call for proposal submissions is continuous. SymbNET will fund 12 projects over the three years of the project (2021-2023).
