Members of FEMS Member Societies can apply for research grants and/or support when organizing or attending a meeting – including our Member Societies’ national and regional congresses. Every year we support meeting organizers and early career researchers and enable experts to share ideas and promote excellence in science.
Our 2015-2019 strategic framework extends our definition of microbiology research to include Member microbiologists in education, policy, business and scientific communication.

Deciding and embarking on a career, working towards and taking the next professional step, hunting THAT job has high stakes and can be daunting. One could think that it has become less daunting given the days when jobs were for life are gone. However, the job hunt often takes place at generally stressful times: we may be working towards a qualification/that paper that needs adding to the CV, or time for hunting must be found on top of a demanding job.
