Education and Training
IARC Postdoctoral Fellowship Charter
Welcome to IARC as a postdoctoral fellow
The training period provides an opportunity:
1) to apply knowledge acquired in basic and PhD training in a first-rate research programme;
2) to develop the skills required to become an independent scientist;
3) to gain experience in conducting research in an international environment.
In order to fully benefit from this opportunity the Agency has put in place this Charter, which describes the opportunities and commitments expected of the postdoctoral fellow, the Supervisor and the Agency during the period of training. The Charter covers postdoctoral fellows who either have been awarded a competitive IARC Postdoctoral Research Training Fellowship within the framework of the official, peer-reviewd Programme governed by IARC/WHO Fellowship rules (hereinafter referred to as Fellows), or those who are supported by funding from individual research groups at the Agency (hereinafter referred to as Postdocs). It is intended that the training experience is independent of the source of financial support.
