EMBO Short-Term Fellowships
- EMBO - European Molecular Biology Organization
- FSJd end:
Short-Term Fellowships fund research exchanges of up to three months between laboratories in eligible countries.
Awarded applicants can stay on their research visit for an additional three months (maximum), however, EMBO will not provide funding for this extended period.
The aim is to facilitate valuable collaborations with research groups applying techniques that are unavailable in the applicant's laboratory.
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.
The fellowships cover travel plus subsistence of the fellow only and not of dependents.
Applicants must be active researchers at any stage in their career with a minimum of one year of research experience at the PhD student level, or equivalent at the time of application.
EMBO Short-Term Fellowships are awarded for research exchanges between laboratories in EMBC Member States, Associated Member States or Cooperation Partners. EMBO Short-Term Fellowships are not awarded for exchanges between two laboratories within the same country.
Only in exceptional caseswill EMBO Short-Term Fellowships be awarded for research visits outside the countries listed above. For such cases, it is essential that a justification be provided why there is no appropriate expertise or technology in EMBC Member States, Associated Member States or Cooperation Partners.
Applications from outside EMBC Member States, Associated Member States or Cooperation Partners will not be considered.
Exceptionally, EMBO will consider applications involving laboratories (home or host) in Japan throughout 2020.
Applications for the exclusive purpose of training in a technique rather than as a component of a wider research project will not be considered for funding.
EMBO does not consider applications for Short-Term Fellowships to prolong visits begun under other auspices, or as bridging fellowships between, or prior to, long-term stays funded by EMBO or other organizations.
Applications for fellowships to attend courses, workshops, or symposia will not be considered. Similarly, EMBO Short-Term Fellowships do not provide additional funding for courses, conference travel, bench fees, overheads or any other expenses beyond travel costs between the laboratories involved and the subsistence rates depending on the country visited.
The application process is handled via the online application system. Applications and supporting documentation (two references, receiving institute acceptance) are only accepted via the online application system. Applications and related correspondence must be in English.
