EMBL (European Molecular Biology Laboratory)

ARISE Fellow

All EMBL Sites (Germany, UK, France, Italy, Spain)

Executive fellowships for careers in service providing research infrastructures

 

Are you an innovative thinker eager to develop novel methods, tools 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 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 operate and develop 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 scientists and engineers for the high-level careers in research infrastructures in academia or industry.

 

You are invited to apply for one of the 20 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.
