The FMI provides access to its outstanding animal facilities, micro-mechanical and electronic workshops, and to core facilities for light and electron microscopy, mouse genetics, proteomics, genomics, structure biology, and computational biology. Competitive start-up and running budgets are provided. Our vibrant and English-speaking scientific environment offers opportunities to collaborate with FMI research teams in neurobiology, epigenetics, and stem cell biology (for further information seewww.fmi.ch).
