Early Career Support

In lymphoma and leukemia research particularly, the bench-to-bedside approach is essential to developing tolerable and more effective therapies for patients. To accommodate this need our goal is to train a group of talented, diverse and highly motivated researchers within this CRC, from doctoral candidates to postdoctoral researchers and junior research group leaders across various disciplines. To this end, being passionate about cancer research is the first step towards this goal – we therefore want to support young researchers in furthering their scientific career and help them unfold their full potential.


Not only do we provide access to the multitude of workshops and programs offered by the University of Cologne (UoC), but we will also devise a CRC 1530 specific workshop series. By offering seminars about cutting-edge techniques, we want to equip students and postdocs with practical tools to conduct competitive research in lymphoma. Drawing on the resources from the UoC and our partner sites, we encourage doctoral students, postdocs and junior research group leaders to take part in career development programs, including workshops on third-party funding and core compentencies in scientific research. 


To support young researchers in maintaining their scientific progress and to help them gain scientific autonomy, we will also provide internal mentorships. Besides scientific input, the expertise and experience from established researchers among our CRC will provide career advice and networking opportunities, which further allows promoting the career pathways of the up-and-coming generation of scientists working in this CRC.
