The IPB employs about 26 postdocs per year, funded through external scholarships, raised third-party funds or institute funds. The group of postdocs elects a representative and his/her deputy for one-year terms of office. The representative represents the interests of all postdocs towards the IPB Board of Directors and the research group heads.
A large number of postdocs are carrying out research projects, including tutoring and support of technical staff and PhD students as well as students in bachelor and master courses. In addition, postdocs are actively involved in university teaching by IPB members (e.g. organisation of guest lectures, supervision of internships). Research results and findings are presented by postdocs at national and international conferences. Their participation in such events is supported by the institute.

One of the key priorities of the IPB is promotion of young talent. For more information about support programs for junior researchers, please visit our page Scholarships and Financial Support.
