the Stecko Research Group

Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences


exploring organic chemistry through methods development and total synthesis

Ulam Programme - call of proposal

The aim of the Ulam Programme is to increase the internationalisation of Polish institutions of science and higher education. The Programme will allow both recognised and promising scientists who hold at least a doctoral degree, to visit Poland for 6 to 24 months in order to strengthen the scientific potential of Polish entities and to participate in their scientific activities, primarily research projects and didactics. The Programme will allow to invite scientists regardless of their age, from all around the world and representing all fields of science, including Polish citizens working permanently abroad (they may constitute a maximum of 10% of Fellows in the call). HEIs, scientific and research institutes will have the opportunity to invite specialists from their priority areas to Poland – they will make a significant contribution to the research conducted by a given institution, strengthen didactics or support the institution in applying for prestigious grant. More detailes on Ulam Programme website.

The persons, who are intrested to join our group as a post-doc, are encouraged to apply for a grant in Ulam Programme are pleased to contact with group leader.
