The EIPOD4 fellowship programme is open to all nationalities and welcomes applications from experience researchers with diverse educational backgrounds (e.g. life sciences, mathematics, chemistry, physics, engineering) who are passionate about pursuing ambitious interdisciplinary research projects in an international setting. The positions include:

  • Three-years of secured funding 
  • Travel and accommodation support to visit partner labs (EMBL and external if relevant)
  • Mandatory and optional training offers
  • Public engagement activities
  • Dedicated career development service including a career secondment programme
  • Mentoring opportunities
  • Conference funds

The programme supports equal opportunities is the broadest possible sense. Some of EMBL’s sites have onsite child care and the others have arrangements with local providers. Part-time is a possibility for fellows returning from parental leave. EMBL also makes work place modifications for researchers with special needs.
