Do you want to try out what it is like to be a scientist in the field of medicine and pharmacy? Then you are welcome to apply to SOFOSKO (Summer Research School) and spend 6 weeks of the summer testing the everyday life of a researcher.

Due to the coronavirus, there is some uncertainty about how SOFOSKO will be conducted this summer.

We plan to be able to conduct the introductory course remotely. For the practical laboratory work, it may be possible to replace certain portions with literature studies and/or to move work weeks to next summer. The conditions for being able to carry out laboratory projects under current circumstances vary between different research groups. As far as special solutions are concerned, they must be prepared specifically for each project by the supervisor in consultation with the student.

As we get closer to summer and we can better see the situation – hopefully by mid-May – we will inform all concerned students and supervisors about the rules and guidelines that apply to SOFOSKO.

The last application date for SOFOSKO 2020 was 1 March. The next application period is expected to open in February 2021.
