Young scientists actively seek EMBO (European Molecular Biology Organization) Long-Term Fellowships for postdoctoral research to fund and support their internationally mobile careers. Hundreds of scientists also benefit each year from EMBO Short-Term Fellowships, returning to their home laboratories with new skills as well as contacts for future collaborations.
EMBO Members and EMBO Young Investigators rigorously review all applications to EMBO Fellowships for their scientific potential. A core programme since the 1960s, EMBO Fellowships has benefited thousands of early career scientists.
Short-Term Fellowships fund research visits of up to three months to laboratories in Europe and elsewhere in the world. The aim is to facilitate valuable collaborations with research groups applying techniques that are unavailable in the applicant’s laboratory. Short-Term Fellowships are not awarded for exchanges between two laboratories within the same country. Short-Term Fellowships are intended for joint research work rather than consultations.
All applications should focus on the benefit to the home laboratory and involve movement between countries – one of which must be an EMBC Member State. (For applicants from a laboratory within a non-member state, the Short-Term Fellowships are for a fixed duration of 90 days). The fellowships cover travel plus subsistence of the fellow only and not of dependents.
Deadlines: Applications accepted throughout the year
The EMBO Long-Term Fellowships are awarded for a period of up to two years and support post-doctoral research visits to laboratories throughout Europe and the world*. International exchange is a key feature in the application process.
All fellowships must involve movement between countries. The receiving institute or the applicant’s nationality must be from one of the EMBC Member States.
Deadlines: 13 February 2015 & 14 August 2015
