Criteria

FEMS invites teachers of undergraduate and postgraduate level microbiology from across Europe to attend the School. Applicants do not need to belong to a FEMS member society.
Please note that we do accept applications from outside of Europe, but keep in mind that a valid visa for Italy is needed if the applicant is not from a Schengen/EU Country.

Applicants are asked to provide:

  1. current CV
  2. a short letter of motivation and identified developmental needs in context of teaching 
  3. an overview of teaching experience so far and their philosophy of teaching

Applicants will be selected based on the merit of their applications in the areas listed below. An additional selection criterion will be to ensure geographical variety, reflecting the FEMS membership base with representation of many European countries and for a cohort that reflects the diversity of the microbiological community.

  • evidence of commitment to teaching
  • evidence of commitment to personal development
  • geographical and diversity context
Travel Support

Up to 5 attendees will receive complimentary registration and support of up to EUR 500 towards travel costs. All applicants will be eligible for this support.

Featured Issue

Yeast Pathogenesis and Drug Resistance: the Beauty of the bYeast

FEMS Yeast Research is proud to present this latest thematic issue on yeast pathogenesis and drug resistance. In the past few decades, genetics and genomics studies have uncovered traits underlying the pathogenicity and drug resistances of pathogenic yeast. However, we still have a lot to uncover about the complex mechanisms used by different species to thrive in the human host, and much to do to convert this knowledge into improved clinical treatments. This thematic issue highlights the importance of the diversity of genome-scale approaches to unravel the intricate nature of pathogenesis and drug resistance in pathogenic yeasts, bringing together  a diverse range of fascinating views on antifungal drug resistance.
