EIPOD4 is a new international postdoctoral fellowship programme co-funded by Marie-Skłodowska Curie Actions (grant agreement number 847543). Designed to support the increasing diversity of career paths in Europe’s research landscape, the programme offers three tracks for fellows to choose from based on their research interests and career aspirations.

The academic track is designed for fellows largely interested in pursuing a classical academic career. The industry track supports interdisciplinary research projects involving an industry partner or applied research projects. The clinical track targets MD/PhDs who aspire to work as physician scientists and fellows with a strong interest in biomedical research.

The NHM is the public engagement partner for the EIPOD4 programme and will provide training to supported fellows. The NHM is experienced in training a wide range of science professionals in effective science communication and, as the most visited science museum in the UK with more than 5 million visitors per annum, can provide many varied opportunities to engage with the public.

The NHM also has a thriving postgraduate and post-doctoral research community into which the EIPOD4 fellows would be integrated.
