The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) invites you to apply for PhD positions in Heidelberg, Barcelona, Grenoble, Hamburg, Hinxton (near Cambridge) and Rome.
The EMBL International PhD Programme, originally established in 1983, represents the flagship of EMBL’s commitment to first class training and education. Internationality, dedicated mentoring and early independence in research characterise our programme.
Would you like to contribute your creativity to an international team of scientists from all disciplines focusing on basic research in the area of molecular life sciences? We invite candidates with background in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering and Molecular Medicine to apply.
EMBL opens the door to your scientific career: our students have an outstanding publication record, are a vital part of our global collaborations and receive their degrees jointly with our network of excellent partner universities in 17 different countries.
The typical duration of a PhD thesis at EMBL is 3.5 to 4 years. EMBL predoctoral fellowships are initially awarded for 3.5 years, with the possibility of a half-year extension.
Each candidate will be interviewed during the Initial Admission Assessment (IAA) interview. This is a 20 minutes pass interview and is the prerequisite to be eligible to join the EIPP. EMBL covers reasonable travel expenses for interview attendance. Due to the current situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we anticipate the possibility of conducting interviews in a virtual format. Full details regarding the interview process will be sent to invited candidates.
