Apply now for funding for PCDI Postdoc Retreat 2013!

 The Postdoc Career Development Initiative (PCDI) supports postdocs and final year PhD students at career orientation and realising young researchers’ potential.

On 13 - 15 March 2013, PCDI’s best known event, the annual Postdoc Retreat, will be held for the 9th time. Aim of this three-day course is to support you in making the next step in your career: identify your skills and talents, develop a vision on science, improve your transferable skills and learn about the variety of career paths in Life Sciences within and outside academia. The programme includes inspiring lectures, training workshops, meet & greet with potential employers and a forum discussion with prominent persons in Life Sciences.

The PCDI Postdoc Retreat is a unique career development course in the Netherlands. As it is exclusively open to postdocs and final year PhD students in Life Sciences, you can expect tailored activities, immediately relevant to your career stage. Over 900 early career scientists already took part in the PCDI Postdoc Retreat, including  more than 85 participants from NGI-centres! Reviews are very positive.

Funding for 50 NGI postdocs/PhD students

The Netherlands Genomics Initiative (NGI) wants to actively encourage her young researchers to participate. NGI will sponsor participation for the very last time, up to a maximum of 50 sponsorships (of the registration fee). This NGI funding will be assigned on a first come first served basis. NGI sponsored participants of earlier editions of the PCDI Postdoc Retreat cannot reapply for NGI funding for 2013.

Send the completed application form for funding first to the Netherlands Proteomics Centre. The NPC will sign the form and send it to the Netherlands Genomics Initiative. After approval of your sponsor request, you can proceed to online register via the PCDI website.
