The call for applications for the 2018 EMBL Interdisciplinary Postdocs Fellowship (EIPOD) is now open until September 12th. The fellowships are funded by EMBL and a grant from Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions from the EU and provide young scientist with full funding for a three year position. Applicants are invited to propose an interdisciplinary project according to their scientific interest. Each project should involve two EMBL groups. External partners from academia or industry are welcome.

Successful candidates will pursue interdisciplinary projects, transferring techniques to a new context or connecting scientific fields that are usually separate, across at least two labs at the six EMBL sites.

Who can apply?

The EIPOD fellowship programme is open to all nationalities, the only criteria being scientific excellence and interdisciplinarity. You must have your PhD (or 4 years of full-time equivalent research experience) before you can start your EIPOD position. We welcome applications from scientists who are currently doing postdoctoral research at another institution.  Postdocs at EMBL are also eligible to apply provided that previous affiliation with EMBL does not exceed 12 months in the last three years prior to the submission deadline.

EIPODs will join the EMBL Postdoctoral Programme with its broad range of advanced training and career development opportunities.
