A total of 6 postdoc positions over two years are available at Hannover Medical School (MHH) in the EKFS-funded Medical Scientist program nextGENERATION (ReGENERAte Organ FunctION).

The call is addressed to scientists with a PhD who want to break new ground in the field of regenerative medicine and are interested in a future key role in translational medicine. The technical focus is generally on cell-based and/or gene therapy therapies. The organ or disease system is open and can therefore include, for example, infections as well as cardiovascular or chronic inflammatory diseases.

The structured nextGENERATION program offers advanced training in basic biomedical research with a clinically oriented, patient-centered focus. Participants are given the opportunity to integrate into the Hannover-Braunschweig science region and are prepared in the best possible way for a career as a medical scientist in academic medicine. The program aims to promote personalities towards the leadership of their own research group. The profile should therefore present or demonstrate a clear own research aspect that is sustainable for the future.

What is funded

The nextGENERATION program enables:

  • 3-year structured scientific (and clinical) continuing education with an individually designed career plan.
  • Financial support for own project (120,000 € for personnel and material resources)
  • At least 20% research time for the own research project
  • Personal support by an individually composed mentor team
  • Offers for professional development and acquisition of key competencies
  • Assumption of further training costs (e.g. TRAIN Academy)
  • Regular evaluations and feedback meetings
  • Additional funding in case of successful acquisition of DFG and/or ERC grants
