Family-friendly, flexible and far-reaching

July 22, 2004

The new eligibility criteria represent an integration of the fellowships formerly offered under the EMBO Restart Programme and EMBO World Programme. All applications for these fellowships will now be dealt with as part of the EMBO Fellowship Programme application procedure.

Long-term fellowships

Changes to the long-term fellowship eligibility criteria reflect EMBO's long-standing commitment to promoting gender equality and fostering family-friendly conditions in research: Bi-annual application deadline: February 15, August 15

Short-term fellowships

Short-term fellowships offer candidates the opportunity to work in laboratories outside their home countries for a period of up to 3 months. New additions to the short-term fellowship eligibility criteria aim to remove geographical boundaries from applications and promote collaboration in research. Previously movement was only possible between European Molecular Biology Conference (EMBC) member states (http://www.embo.org/embc/index.html): Rolling application deadline: Applications accepted throughout the year

EMBO

The European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) promotes biosciences in Europe. It was established by leading scientists almost 40 years ago. The organization raised the standards in this area of science through the establishment of a specialist laboratory (EMBL), the provision of training through practical courses and workshops and by stimulating mobility through its Fellowship Programme. Today EMBO has 1200 elected members, including 36 Nobel Prize laureates.

The European Molecular Biology Conference (EMBC) supports EMBO's activities. The EMBC member states are: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and United Kingdom.
