FIMM Community
Over 250 researchers, coordinators and laboratory and IT experts work together at FIMM to advance our scientific goals.
FIMM spirit

For us at FIMM, a vibrant work atmosphere, positive attitude and strong support within a local community are essential. We understand the importance of wellbeing and work to foster it through approaches such as peer mentoring, soft skills training and group retreats. We value an open and transparent management culture in which all employees are encouraged to voice their opinions. The aim of our regular informal institute meetings is to keep our staff well-informed about future developments and to give everyone a chance to participate in the dialogue. The FIMM Student and Postdoc Council and the FIMMPOD programme have proven to be great ways to support our doctoral students, postdocs, coordinators and senior researches and to build team spirit within this community.

FIMM staff

Over 250 researchers, coordinators and laboratory and IT experts work together at FIMM to advance our scientific goals. Most of our staff members work in scientific roles. Our research is delivered by these talented scientists, ranging from research directors and group leaders, through senior researchers, postdoctoral researchers, doctoral students and research assistants. Both our researchers and external customers rely on the support and expertise provided by our research support personnel, many of whom are also Ph.D. level scientists. 

Our working environment is both multidisciplinary and international. Our staff members hold expertise in many different scientific disciplines, the majority having a biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics or medical background. They also come from all over the world:  In September 2020, a third of our personnel was international, representing 28 different nationalities.

Our sense of community makes us strong.
