Executive fellowships for careers in service-providing research infrastructures (ARISE MSCA fellowships)


Are you an innovative thinker, eager to develop novel/improve existing tools, methods and technologies for the life sciences? Are you driven by curiosity and impact? Do you wish to become an expert in service development, provision and research infrastructure management in academia or industry? If so, we would like to hear from you! Here is why:


The life sciences are increasingly relying on advanced technologies and services provided by the core facilities, synchrotrons, data services and other research infrastructures. This creates a greater need for trained experts who know how to develop and operate scientific services. To meet this need, the ARISE programme (Career Accelerator for Research Infrastructure Scientists) at EMBL, is the first Fellowship programme of its kind in Europe that trains engineers and scientists for the high-level careers in research infrastructures in academia or industry.


You are invited to apply for one of the 30+ three-year Fellowships to

  • work at EMBL on a method, tool or technology development of your choice which will have a potential to be provided as a service to external life science researchers

  • get trained in the operation and management of research infrastructures and service provision. 


For the ARISE programme, we encourage applications from individuals who can complement our teams – we believe that success is built on having teams whose backgrounds and personal experiences reflect the diversity of the populations that our science serves. We are particularly interested in the strengths and lived experiences of women, and all genders, different ethnic groups and cultures, and all demographics to help us avoid perpetuating biases and oversights at this transformational point in our people strategy.

ARISE receives funding from Horizon 2020 under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie action COFUND (grant agreement No 945405).


What you will be doing

As an ARISE Fellow, you will be developing/improving a method, technique or technology of your choice which is in the field of expertise of EMBL groups who are participating in ARISE, e.g.:

  1. Bioinformatics, computational modelling, software development, data management, data science, AI and machine learning.

  2. Imaging and image analysis, optical engineering, detector development, microscopy, X-ray optics, X-ray crystallography.

  3. (Bio)chemical engineering, chemistry or chemical biology, omics technologies.

  4. Automation, high-precision mechanics, microfluidics, robotics.


Your development should facilitate research in life science fields of genome, structural, developmental and planetary biology, cell and tissue biology, translational research, or drug design and have the potential to be integrated into the service catalogues of research infrastructures.

You will get trained for jobs in research infrastructures (core facilities, data services, synchrotrons etc.) and attend over 60 courses on how to provide and plan services, how to manage the operation of diverse infrastructure, manage staff and finances, handle innovation and collaboration with industry, do strategic planning, and understand science policy and funding system.    


You will also be able to network with a diverse group of professionals working at EMBL and in ARISE partner organisations

The fellowship duration is 36 months.


You have


  • At least four years of full-time equivalent research or development experience in the fields mentioned above (including first experience in technology development), after the university degree.

  • University degree in natural sciences or related STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) at the level which theoretically entitles you to enrol into a PhD (PhD is not mandatory).

Flow Cytometry Facility Manager
Zuckerman Institute, Columbia University 
New York City

Join the Flow Cytometry Platform at the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University and you will have the opportunity to be part of the cutting-edge neuroscience research happening here.  This essential flow cytometry lab is hiring a manager to handle all aspects of running the facility. The new manager will have the opportunity to assume the Director position. 

The successful candidate will be responsible for operating and troubleshooting a Beckman Coulter MoFlo Astrios EQ cell sorter and a Sony Biotechnology MA900 cell sorter.  You will operate and maintain the Astrios sorter.  The MA900 is an end user operated instrument.  You will train new users to operate this instrument correctly, oversee their experiments and do periodic maintenance.  Through your interactions with flow facility users you will be exposed to ongoing research activities at Zuckerman Institute such as studies on sensory receptors and connectivity, causes and treatment of neurodegenerative and psychological diseases, nervous system development and the molecular biology that describes what is going on in the cells that we sort.

The new manager should be knowledgeable about flow cytometry tools, techniques, protocols and have some biological laboratory experience.  Staying well versed in cutting edge technology and reagents for flow cytometry is essential for guiding facility users.  You will help users with experimental design that insures reproducible, accurate data and deliver high quality cell sorter output for downstream assays. This position requires a knowledgeable communicator that can inform users of the best way to set gates and sort the cells they need, recommend reagents that will improve the definition of cell populations of interest as well as analyze data. 

Flow cytometers are packed with optics, electronics, plumbing and mechanical parts.  The successful candidate must be a clever troubleshooter and manage to keep the instruments functioning when things go wrong. You will occasionally have to think outside the box and be ready to implement emergency repairs to complete ongoing experiments.  For serious problems, the resources of Beckman and Sony will help with instrument difficulties.  These instruments are under service contracts.

Candidates with 2+ years of flow cytometry experience are preferred.  If you have the skills but not the experience your application will also be considered.  Salary is commensurate with experience.  Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute is located at the Jerome L. Greene Science Center located at the Manhattanville campus of Columbia University near the main campus of Columbia University in New York City.  In addition to working with premiere faculty and students you will have all that NYC has to offer just out of the front door.  This position will become available in September 2023.
