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 Greece is needed if the applicant is not from a Schengen/EU Country.
Applicants are asked to provide:
- current CV
- a short letter of motivation and identified developmental needs in context of teaching
- 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
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.
