Careers news: Novartis opens for post-docs in Basel

For the first time ever, Novartis has opened a call for a 2-3 year postdoctoral fellowship in drug discovery and drug development in Basel.

Novartis currently offers a programme in Cambridge Massachusetts, but openings to post-docs in Basel have never been offered before.

The selected fellows will have the chance to drive a research project under the expert eyes of Novartis scientists, but will also receive training in industrial drug discovery and development including skilling up in communication and business.

Knowing your science isn’t enough! You will also need to show an entrepreneurial spirit, a willingness to have a high impact and a focus on improving patient lives.

All scientific and technical disciplines are welcome, including biology, chemical biology, chemistry, computational science and data science.

Hurry! The submission deadline is April 24th 2020.

Why Basel?

Basel is Switzerland’s third-largest city, sitting in between the borders of Germany, France and of course, Switzerland. Basel is well known for being a global life-science hub with well over 100 life sciences companies calling the city it’s home.
