Information for Ph. D. student/ postdoc applicants:
Since the number of applications is very high, it is important for postdocs to apply well in advance and to have an excellent scientific record. Openings for one or two postdocs with an excellent track record exist in most years. When you apply, please provide the e-mail addresses of at least three scientists who can comment on your scientific qualifications.
It is also essential for postdocs to write a project proposal and to apply for postdoctoral fellowships. This should be done after a discussion of current topics of interest. Assistance in writing the proposal is given, but it is important that the project proposal reflects your ideas.
All interested Ph.D. student applicants have to apply directly to the EMBL International Ph.D. Programme. Each year, there are two application deadlines and interview weeks.
