FMI one of the top-ranking institutions internationally for postdocs
Today The Scientist, an American professional magazine of the life sciences, announced the results of their 10th Annual Best Places to Work for Postdocs survey. In this survey, the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research ranks fourth among international institutions.
The survey shows that postdoctoral training has changed in the last decades: postdocs stay longer in their current positions but are also happier with their jobs. At the FMI, postdocs benefit from a well-developed infrastructure, state-of-the-art technology platforms and a comprehensive postdoctoral training. After 2006, when the FMI was voted "Best Place to Work for Postdocs" outside the USA, this is the second time that the FMI ranks in the top-five of this survey.
