BioMed X Institute Launches Funding Program for Ukrainian Refugees


  • The “Ukrainian Refugee Funding Program” provides a research opportunity for doctoral students or master-level researchers at the BioMed X Institute in Heidelberg, Germany
  • The program is aimed at doctoral students and scientists at master’s level in the field of life sciences.

HEIDELBERG, Germany, May 18, 2022 / B3C Newswire / — German independent research institute BioMed X today announces the launch of its “Refugee Funding Program in Ukraine” which supports PhD students and Masters-level researchers in the life sciences who cannot continue their work at institutions in Ukraine. Together with some of its partners, BioMed X aims to give these scientists the opportunity to continue their work in a research group at the BioMed X Institute in Heidelberg, Germany, for a period of up to four years.

Thomas Rückle, Senior Vice President and Head of Research at the BioMed X Institute: “The situation in Ukraine is a tragedy that requires a joint effort to offer support and help. Our BioMed X institute is a place where early career scientists have the opportunity to grow. Together with some of our partners, we started this funding program because we sincerely hope to provide a scientific home for some of the researchers who cannot pursue their careers in Ukraine.

Ideal candidates have a master’s degree, as well as research experience, in molecular/cellular biology, bio-organic chemistry, pharmacology or physics. Knowledge of the German language is not required. Both Ukrainian and non-Ukrainian citizens are welcome to apply, provided they meet the eligibility criteria.
