EMBO Short-Term Fellowships
Funding body:European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO), co-funded by the European Commission FP7 (Marie Curie Actions, EMBOCOFUNDFP7)
Important dates:Applications accepted all year. Applications should be submitted three months before the proposed start date.
Description:Short-Term Fellowships fund research visits of up to three months to laboratories in Europe and elsewhere in the world. The aim is to facilitate valuable collaborations with research groups applying techniques unavailable in their own laboratories. Short-Term Fellowships are not awarded for exchanges between two laboratories within the same country. Short-term Fellowships are intended for joint research work rather than consultations.
All applications should focus on the benefit to the home laboratory and involve movement between countries - one of which must be an EMBC Member State. (For non-EU applicants, the Short-Term Fellowships are for a fixed duration of 90 days). The fellowships cover travel plus subsistence of the fellow only and not of any dependents.
Applicants can be scientists with less than ten years of professional experience since finishing their PhD degree.
Applicants can be pre-doctoral scientists who have not yet completed a PhD degree (or equivalent). Candidates with little research experience have a lower priority.
Short-Term Fellowships are awarded for exchanges between two laboratories in different countries.
All applications must involve either a laboratory of origin or a receiving institute from one of the EMBC Member States.
