The INCOMED programme promotes 10 postdoctoral fellowships in all areas of biomedicine and clinical medicine at the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute (VHIR). This is an incoming mobility programme that promotes training and career development that complies with the concept of individual trans-national mobility. It is addressed to experienced researchers capable of developing a competitive research project and based on the merit of the candidates. INCOMED will publish two calls offering 5 fellowships in each call. Each fellowship will have a duration of two years. Pre-selected candidates will be invited for interviews. Successful candidates will be asked to sign an employment contract that follows national legislation in Spain and a set of guidelines of good practice at VHIR. INCOMED fellows will have supervised training in the laboratory of their choice and will have career development via a set of activities that includes direct management of the postdoctoral committee at VHIR, active participation at international meetings and mentoring of PhD students. The expected impact of INCOMED in the European Research Area is the implementation of a tool that allows experienced researchers to obtain professional training and career development in biomedicine and clinical medicine in a leading European University Hospital and Research Centre.
