EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded to support excellent postdoctoral researchers in lab- oratories throughout Europe and the world. International exchange is a key requirement. EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowships also support the career development of the fellows through leadership courses and networking opportunities.
• hold a doctorate degree or equivalent at the start of the fellowship
• have obtained PhD during the two years prior to the last date of application
• have at least one first author publication accepted in or published in an international peer reviewed journal at the time of application
• must apply with projects that involve movement between countries (detailed information about mobility requirements is listed in the EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowships guidelines)
Within EMBC member countries, EMBO provides grants to the host institution that should be used to cover the cost of an employment contract to be issued by the host institution to the awardee. These costs include the employer’s social contributions, the awardee’s social contributions, taxes as required by national and local laws and regulations, and the net salary of the awardee.
Childcare allowance: For children under the age of six, fellows can claim support for incurred childcare costs up to the amount of €2500 per fellowship year for each child.
Relocation allowance: The relocation allowance is intended to cover travel costs up to the amount of €5000 for the fellow and his/her family to and from the host institute. The relocation allowance further includes half a month’s grant rate to contribute to relocation costs.
EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded for a period of two years although shorter durations can be requested. The minimum fellowship duration that can be requested is one year. Fellow- ships must be started within one calendar year from the relevant evaluation cut-off.
Applications are invited throughout the year.
