stories of RESEARCHERS in poland
I came to Poland with my family to join Prof. Piotr Sułkowski's group at the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw. I was employed as a postdoctoral researcher for his project "Quantum Fields and Knot Homologies" funded by European Research Council, which aims to tackle fundamental questions that lie at the interface of quantum field theory, string theory and knot theory.
Jan, the Netherlands
After completing my PhD in the Netherlands, I came to Warsaw, Poland, for a postdoc position at the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Since I am a European citizen, securing a visa for myself was not a problem. However, my fiancée is from the United States and it was much more of a fuss to obtain a residence permit for her, mainly because we are not yet married. We were in the process of going through all the paperwork and trying to figure out how to proceed when someone recommended that we contact Monika Zaremba from EURAXESS Centre in Warsaw.
I came to Poland in July 2011 to work as a Marie Curie early stage researcher at the Faculty of Chemistry, Warsaw University of Technology. My stay was funded by Initial Training Networks (ITN) under the TOPBIO (TwO Photon absorbers for BIOmedical applications) project.
I went to Warsaw, Poland, in September 2013 to work at the Pharmaceutical Research Institute for almost 3 years as a PhD student in a European Marie Curie project (Initial Training Networks).
I worked as a Marie Curie fellow in an EU funded program at the Pharmaceutical Research Institute in Warsaw, Poland, for three years (2013 September - 2016 August).
