Description:The EMBO Long-Term Fellowships are awarded for a period of up to two years and support post-doctoral research visits to laboratories throughout Europe and the world. International exchange is a key feature in the application process. All fellowships must involve movement between countries and one of those countries must be an EMBC Member State.

Applicants must hold a doctorate degree or equivalent before the start of the fellowship but not necessarily when applying.
