EMBL and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action Cofund are now offering 20 three-year Fellowships to

  • Join us to work on method 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 operation and management of research infrastructures and service provision.

 

The training will cover the topics of planning and providing services, managing operation of the research infrastructure, financial management, staff management, innovation and collaboration with industry, strategic planning, understanding science policy and funding system, etc. More details are presented on the ARISE website.

ARISE is the first Fellowship programme of its kind in Europe and is designed to train Fellows to become highly skilled leaders or senior staff at research infrastructures or other service providing facilities. You will also be able to connect/network with a diverse group of professionals.

Each ARISE Fellow, you will be hosted by an EMBL group/team of their choice at one of our six sites (Barcelona, Grenoble, Hamburg, Heidelberg, Hinxton, or Rome) and will do secondments at partner organisations from industry or academia. EMBL group and team leaders participating in ARISE all have a track record in developing new methods and technologies, providing these as a service to diverse groups of external researchers, and applying them to answer novel scientific questions.
